The fall in crime has been noticed by residents with the 84% of people surveyed thinking the police are dealing with the things that matter most in their communities. This is the highest level of satisfaction with the police ever recorded in Corby.
Inspector Gary Williams has been telling Heart:
“We are very pleased that confidence is so high in local policing and we will remain committed to identifying and dealing with the issues that matter most to people in Corby. We are working hard to tackle unacceptable behaviour and the serious crimes which can have such a negative impact upon not only the victim, but also the wider community.
“I am particularly pleased with the huge reduction in criminal damage, which is a very visual crime which can badly affect community confidence and the appearance of our neighbourhoods. The reductions are significant set against a background of extended public holidays and the warm weather. “
