Rural police force achieves international recognition

North Yorkshire’s rural police force has been shortlisted for the World Class Policing Awards 2019, according to local paper York Press

The force, which is the largest rural team in England, was recognised for its work on anti-poaching and anti-fly tipping initiatives. Its Operation Owl run with the RSPB, RSPCA and Yorkshire Dales and North York Moors national parks to protect birds of prey was so successful it was rolled out nationwide this summer.

Inspector Jon Grainge said: ‘It’s a great honour to be shortlisted for a policing award alongside colleagues from the UK, Australia, New Zealand and around the world…We don’t aim to win awards – we aim to keep rural residents safe by catching criminals and safeguarding our communities. However, it’s very rewarding to see our approach recognised at an international level.’
