Office and Senior Employee Information

The core office of Northamptonshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner employs 27 people and as the PFCC is the fire authority as well as the police governance authority, staff are needed to manage that responsibility. Included in this number is a shared Communications Team with the Fire & Rescue Service. The Office of the Northamptonshire Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner has also taken on a greater role under the Government’s changes to the police complaints system therefore, three members of staff have been employed to deliver this important responsibility.

Demand on our emergency services, particularly in Northamptonshire, which is one of the fastest growing counties in the country, will continue to outstrip the number of officers therefore the OPFCC wanted measures to prevent young people becoming involved in crime or victims of crime in the first place. For that reason, the PFCC has chosen to create and directly employ a team of professionals to work with young people and families, rather than commission services from an outside provider. This is to ensure that they are flexible, focussed on demand and accountable for working with police and other key partners.

The Early Intervention officers work with families and young people in difficulties at an early stage to prevent their problems from escalating and the proposed new multi-agency domestic abuse team will provide initial direct support to families who have issues with parental conflict or where there are issues of Domestic Abuse. The youth workers provide a detached youth service across the county, focussed on areas that have been identified because of a high level of reported anti-social behaviour and a high number of school exclusions.

There are currently 102.95 FTE people employed in the OPFCC (This excludes the PFCC and staff seconded to other agencies. The OPFCC also provides governance support to Northamptonshire Fire and Rescue Service)

incidents and serious road traffic collisions in Northamptonshire. On the 1st April 2023 it became part of the OPFCC and currently employs 53 people (49.15 FTE) to deliver this statutory service
