As the crackdown on violence continues across Northamptonshire, police reveal that 53 people have been arrested.

During the last two weeks, as part of Operation Limit, Northamptonshire Police has arrested 53 people for violence, according to figures released by the force on Friday.

Out of the 53 arrests, 21 people have been charged and five have been given cautions.

There have been two community resolutions, two delay charge bailed and one recall to prison.

New initiatives will be launched over the coming weeks across the county, including a focus on domestic abuse, ensuring there are no breaches of any bail conditions, a pilot for a “say no to violence” campaign in schools, and a knife amnesty.

Chief Inspector Dennis Murray, County Commander said: “The pace of Operation Limit is relentless.

“There is no hiding place for those who commit violent crime in this county.”

Operation Limit was launched earlier this month with an aim to reduce violent crime in Northamptonshire.
