Rural Crime – improving resilience against rural crime
We are aware that Rural Crime is on the increase and your local Neighbourhood Policing Team as well as our dedicated Rural Crime Team work to support farming and rural communities across the Avon and Somerset force area.
Information to help keep your equipment, livestock and property safe as well as guidance on how to log your valuables from around the home and farm is available on our dedicated Crime Prevention website at: www.aspolicestaysafe.co.uk. If items are stolen, we have a better chance of returning them to you if they are marked and registered.
You might also be interested in starting or joining an existing Farm or Horse Watch scheme. Details can be found on our website at: https://www.avonandsomerset.police.uk/apply
If you are unable to print any of the information you need, please make contact with us using the contact form on this Neighbourhood Policing page and will will print and post to you. Please provide your full name and address.

We conduct regular hi visibility patrols in rural locations.
We are working with individual farms and remote properties on any issues they have reported to us.
