Help protect the people you care for from falling victim to doorstep crime.
Every day in Northamptonshire people are prone to falling victim to doorstep crime. Most of the victims are elderly or vulnerable.
Whether you are caring for a family member, working as a professional in the community care or community safety field, or just keeping an eye out for a neighbour, you may be the only person that has regular contact with the person(s) you care for and can play a vital role in preventing them from becoming a victim.
Our Doorstep Crime Action Network brings together members of the public, private, public, charity, and community sector organisations. We are asking anyone who has contact with an elderly or vulnerable person to pass on the gentle crime prevention reminders detailed in this leaflet.
If you or anyone you know is experiencing domestic abuse, help and support is available. Please see the information below and on the other pages in this section for more details.
We can help you get safe and stay safe.
Domestic abuse can happen to anyone, at any time, regardless of gender, age, sexuality, race, culture, religion or class, and each year Northamptonshire police officers are called to more than 10,000 domestic abuse related incidents.
Our aim, first and foremost, is to protect the victim and remove the risk of further attack. We will fully investigate criminal offences, however, we know that victims of domestic abuse often need additional support and reassurance.
As such, we work very closely with a range of organisations that provide specialist support to victims of domestic abuse, and we can arrange access to these agencies so that you can get the emotional and practical support you need to get safe and stay safe.
Are you a victim of domestic abuse?
Domestic abuse is defined as any incident of threatening behaviour, violence or abuse (psychological, physical, sexual, financial or emotional) between adults, who are or have been intimate partners or family members.
Domestic abuse is rarely a one-off event and is more common than most people realise. It often escalates in seriousness and frequency over time and can be made worse by separation, pregnancy, debt, alcohol or drug use, or issues around children.
If you are experiencing domestic abuse, it is not your fault. You do not have to suffer in silence. Northamptonshire Police and other agencies, such as the Sunflower Centre, Victim Support or Women's Aid, can help you get the support you need to move on with your life.
Our new campaign aims to highlight domestic abuse and encourage those affected by it to report it. If you, or anyone you know, is experiencing abuse or violence in a close relationship, support is available.
- Call Northamptonshire Police on 101 or in an emergency, call 999
- You can also call the national 24 hour domestic abuse helpline on 0808 2000 247
