Do you Fit the Bill?  The Police are running a recruitment campaign to encourage people to join the Force.  Their website gives more detail, summarising some of the work they get involved in and the benefits.  There's also a great video which shows some of the Officers undertaking their many and varied roles.


About Operation Unite 

Launched in December 2017, Operation Unite is working to reduce arson and anti-social behaviour in and around Daventry town centre. It is run as a partnership that includes Daventry District Council, Fire & Rescue, Northamptonshire Police, Daventry Town Council and Neighbourhood Watch.

The aims are:

  • Reduce anti-social behaviour 
  • Reduce fire setting 
  • Create a safer environment 
  • Reduce waste issues and fly-tipping 
  • Educate local business about fire safety 
  • Offer free fire protection advice


Previous events include a town centre survey to gain feedback on issues affecting the area, a day of action on the Southbrook estate to share fire prevention and community safety advice with residents and an Emergency Services Fun Day at Danetre and Southbrook Learning Village.


As well as supporting community projects like Operation Unite, the Arson Task Force also works with young people who are playing with fire. If you have concerns about a child or young person playing with fire please contact the team on 01604 797 160 or email


Anyone with information about any incidents of deliberate fire setting is asked to call Northamptonshire Police on 101 or 999 in an emergency.


It is vital that if you see waste illegally dumped or being deposited, especially if it is a fire hazard, to report it to the council.
