Northamptonshire Police’s chief officer team recently visited the new Northern Accommodation Hub in Kettering, which is located just off the A43 and is due to open next year.

Chief Constable Simon Edens, DCC Andy Frost and ACC Rachel Swann were recently given a tour of the site by staff from developers Bowmer & Kirkland.

They saw the progress being made on the new prisoner investigation centre and the main accommodation base.

Mr Edens said: “I’m hugely impressed with this site, both in terms of its location, but also the sheer scale of it.

“I’m really pleased to see things are taking shape so well and very much looking forward to our staff working here.”

Work on the site is expected to be complete by spring 2017 and provide space for about 350 staff.
