Northamptonshire Police & Fire Service update meeting

The Northamptonshire MPs had a really useful meeting this week with the Chief Constable of Northamptonshire Police, the Chief Fire Officer for the county and the Police, Fire & Crime Commissioner for Northamptonshire, Stephen Mold. This was a really useful catch-up and an opportunity to be updated on various local priority issues, and in particular the steps being taken to boost the recruitment of both firefighters and police officers in the county, through both the local and national schemes. Solid progress is being made and it was good to discuss these matters in more detail, to pick up various pieces of feedback to relay to Ministers, and to share the feedback local residents have provided in recent weeks at my weekly surgeries and when knocking on doors.
