National Rural Crime Week of Action

Alert message sent 11/10/2019 09:07:00

Information sent on behalf of Police & Crime Commissioner

It has been the national Rural Crime Week of Action, and I have been getting an insight into the work that Lancashire Constabulary do every week of the year to protect our rural communities, which is as much a priority for me as it is policing our more urban towns and cities.

Throughout the week I have joined the rural team providing advice to members of the rural community, information on equipment which helps protect against rural criminals and talking about the various ways that the dedicated rural team tackle the unique issues faced by these communities.

I also was able to see how some of the investment into technology is helping the fight against rural criminals, with drones, paid for through the Proceeds of Crime and provided by my office, whilst I have also helped to fund infrared scopes for use when in rural areas.

These assist with operations including poaching, theft of machinery and vehicles such as quad bikes, and the location of rural criminals.

I have met with members from the National Farmers Union and Country Landowners Association who have been extremely positive about the work being done here in the county.

Rural crime can have a huge impact on victims and I continue to fully support the work Lancashire Constabulary is doing to help build safer rural communities.

Yours sincerely,

Clive Grunshaw
