The area for Northampton North comes within the Northampton Crime and Disorder Reduction Partnership (CDRP).

CDRPs were set up under the Crime and Disorder Act 1998 and available figures for the numbers of recorded offences of total ‘theft and handling’ are given in the following table.

Table A: Number of offences recorded for Northampton CDRP, 2000-01 to 2001-02

Total theft and handling stolen goods offences

2000-01

10,893

2001-02

10,714

Note:

An expanded offence coverage and revised set of counting rules were introduced in April 1998. Figures recorded before and after this date are therefore not directly comparable.

Table B: Number of offences recorded for Northampton CDRP, 2002-03 to 2005-06

Total theft and handling stolen goods offences

2002-03

12,506

2003-04

13,212

2004-05

12,154

2005-06

11,486

Note:

Numbers of recorded crime were affected by changes in reporting and recording following the introduction of the National Crime Recording Standard (NCRS) in April 2002. These data are not comparable with earlier years.
