Police - Horton and Hackleton Leaflet Drop - Volunteers Needed

Message from the Community Support:

We have seen a large peak in fraudulent crimes recently across South Northants where offenders are specifically targeting the older generation. They are calling residents from our local villages in clusters with various stories in order to gain personal information, including impersonating police officers. They very often already have some personal information about the resident in order to convince them.

With the huge support of Volunteers, Parishes and Neighbourhood Watch, we have hand delivered nearly 3,000 leaflets to resident's doors. We have also delivered the messages to many other villages through local magazines, notices & organisations and clubs.

Hackleton & Horton are 2x of our hotspot villages that are frequently being targeted therefore we are planning to conduct a leaflet drop on Saturday 12th September, 09:30am onwards. We are looking for volunteers to assist us with this drop which we are hoping to finish by 13:00pm.

If you are able to support us with either village, please email our team inbox via neighbourhoodteamsouthnorthants-towcester@northants.pnn.police.uk

We will be looking to start in Hackleton and making our way across to Horton afterwards.
