New Roads Policing Team being launched by Northamptonshire Police
A new Roads Policing Team is being set up by Northamptonshire Police and applications are being sought from officers who would like to join.
This specialist team will have responsibility for policing the road network, taking ownership for road safety and road crime policing. The team will also have drone, family liaison and ANPR capability as well as providing a licensed search function.
This exciting new opportunity will mean a visible presence on the county’s roads, to promote road safety and enforce road traffic legislation.
Detective Chief Inspector Shelley Nichols, who will head the team, said: “This team will target criminals that use the Northamptonshire road networks to commit offences, disrupting and prosecuting those responsible.
“The team will be made up of five teams, each containing a sergeant and eight constables. The team will operate a 24/7 shift pattern of four days on and four days off.”
