Resident’s chance to air views on rural crime


LESS than two weeks remain for countryside communities to respond to the largest ever survey into rural crime.

Launched by the National Rural Crime Network, it is calling for people who work or live in rural areas to give their views on policing in their community. It also wants residents to outline the impact crime and anti-social behaviour has on them – and help shape the future of crime prevention and rural policing.

The National Rural Crime Network (NRCN) is supported by 29 Police and crime commissioners and police forces across England and Wales.

It includes community safety and rural affairs groups -the National Farmers’ Union, Historic England, Neighbourhood Watch and Crimestoppers.

The survey can be filled in on the NRCN website.
