Reporting Antisocial Behaviour
From aggressive, noisy or abusive behaviour to neighbourhood disturbances involving drugs or animals, antisocial behaviour takes many forms.
If you’ve witnessed antisocial behaviour, please report it to the police. Reports are dealt with by a control room in exactly the same way whether you report it online or call 101.
Several residents have raised concerns to the Parish Council about the increasing amount of cars speeding through the village late at night, into the early mornings, these cars are excessively noisy and travel at speed far in excess of the speed limits. People have concerns that there could be a serious accident.
The Parish Council have been in touch with the Rural Policing Team and Northamptonshire Police Safer Roads Team, they have said they will provide extra patrols through the village when time allows, and that Road safety is one of their priorities they can help with speeding enforcement.
The Police ask for villagers to call the 101 number or report it online when they hear the cars racing, so can respond when the incident is happening.
Nitrous Oxide canisters
Used canisters are being regularly found on the roads in our village, seemingly dumped from vehicles. Unless there is footage showing the vehicle involved, no further action will be taken against the driver due to lack of evidence for CP to proceed to court action.
However, each ASB should be reported direct to Police by residents to ensure they are aware of the clear frequent problem on the local community. If each resident affected reports directly, that increases the amount of witness account reports sent to Northants Police concerning Broughton and bears more weight and counts under reports logged on Police Incident Database. This in turn will count when decision makers are looking at areas with the most ASB reports, in this case quantity counts to help prioritise action.
If you do see these canisters, please report direct to Police via the ASB online form, it takes 2 mins to complete.
