A POLICE woman who started her career in south Northants nearly three decades ago has returned as the district’s most senior officer.

Inspector Helen Pritchett took over the role of Sector Commander for South Northants a month ago following the retirement of Insp Alex Terry.

Insp Pritchett said her aim was to ensure her team deliver excellent service to everyone in the area and is committed to dealing with the issues which matter to south Northants communities.

She added: “We will also be focusing on offenders and offending, reducing violence, improving public confidence with us as a police service and resolving as many reported crimes as possible.”

She encouraged people to make her and her officers aware of their thought and concerns face to face, over the phone or via the internet.
