Have your say with the 2018 National Rural Crime Survey
It’s three years since the last National Rural Crime Survey revealed the huge cost of crime to rural communities – both financial, at £800 million per year, and fear, with chronic under-reporting, anger and frustration at the police and government.
The National Rural Crime Network produced a series of recommendations and, in many areas, the police took steps to improve matters. So, now, we want to know what’s changed. Do you think rural crime has gone up or down? Do you feel safer? What’s your view of the police in your community?
The survey is now available at www.nationalruralcrimenetwork.net and is open for submissions until Sunday 10 June – please share what you feel to help prevent rural crime and increase support for those who experience it.
