NHW- National Rural Crime Survey- Have your say

National rural crime survey wants your views
Do you live in a rural community?
Do you think crime has gone
up or down? Do you feel safer?
What’s your view of the police in
your community?
The 2018 National Rural Crime
Survey conducted by the National
Rural Crime Network (NRCN) is
now underway.
It’s three years since the last National Rural Crime Survey revealed the
huge cost of crime to rural communities – both financial (£800 million
per year), and fear of crime, chronic under-reporting and anger and
frustration at the police and Government.
The National Rural Crime Network produced a series of recommendations
which in many areas, the police took steps to act upon.
Inspector Alex Butterfield, National Police Chief Council – Wildlife
Crime and Rural Affairs spokesman said: “It is important that the Police
understand the views and experiences of our rural communities when
tackling rural crime. Please compete the survey and circulate amongst
your organisations to widen the scope of the survey”.
The survey is open until Sunday 10 June.
