Rural Crime Officer and Farmer Walking In Field

Working together to prevent rural crime

It's no secret, rural crime is a hot topic in the farming community. To help prevent rural crime, we must work together.
We work closely with the South West Rural Crime Teams to report and keep in touch with any crime hot spots or spikes in trends.

Working with Rural Crime Teams, we have created resources, guides and checklists to:

  • Help the farming community protect their livestock
  • Help farmers to keep their farm buildings and contents safe from rural crime activities
If you have been involved in an incident or have seen suspicious activity, please report it to your local Rural Crime Team and keep up to date with the latest rural crime advice and guidance.
