Coronavirus (COVID-19): the policing response and what you need to know

Chard Rural – Farm Machinery & Livestock Theft

The Rural Beat Team are working with the communities to offer crime prevention advice and also to conduct targeted patrols to give local residence some reassurance.

We would strongly encourage everybody to secure and mark their property where possible, for our farming community we recommend fitting trackers to high value machinery as standard practice.

Please report anything suspicious.

Please contact your Team and a visit will be arranged to enable us to offer advice and ideas so we can all combat this crime together.

    Your Rural Neighbourhood Team are continuing to patrol remote locations to identify and check suspicious vehicles or persons believed to be involved in rural crime.

    Targeted Operations will continue to make our Communities feel safer and to identify those responsible for committing these offences.

    Please continue to remain vigilant and report anything suspicious via 101 or 999 if you believe an offence is being committed.
