Find out about the different types of rural crime and how best to protect against becoming a victim.
Rural crime can take many different forms including:
We work with local residents, businesses and partners to raise awareness of crime prevention techniques while developing solutions to tackle rural crime.
There are often fewer witnesses to rural crimes and greater opportunities for criminals to target isolated properties and businesses.
The impact of these crimes can also be greater, with people feeling more vulnerable due to their remote location.
Visit our rural crime page to find out how to protect yourself from this type of crime.
