Rural Crime Week of Action

Sunday 6th - Sunday 13th October

The National Rural Crime Network is supporting the Rural Crime Week of Action being organised by the National Police Chiefs' Council and forces across the country.

The aim of the week is to put the work being done to identify and tackle rural and wildlife crime in the spotlight and encourage more support for the efforts ensure communities across rural Britain are safe and feel safe.

Julia Mulligan, Chair of the National Rural Crime Network, said:

“Rural communities are too often ignored by those in positions of power because they’re hidden from view. I hope this Week of Action allows us to shine a light on the issues they face with crime and anti-social behaviour challenges just like any other part of the country, but also being more vulnerable because of their isolation and distance from support services of all kinds.

“Despite the passionate and professional police officers who serve communities day-in, day-out, we need government and all national organisations to better understand, represent and stand up for the 10.3 million people who live in rural areas.”

The National Rural Crime Network’s last national survey in 2018 examined the true state of crime and policing in rural communities. Its findings can be seen at www.nationalruralcrimenetwork.net/survey.
