Commissioner urges Rural Response to Survey
Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping is calling on rural communities to make their voice heard and fill in a national survey about crime and policing in the countryside.
The survey set up by the National Rural Crime Network (NRCN) is the largest ever into crime and anti-social behaviour in rural areas.
Commissioner Tipping pointed out: “I really hope that rural communities take this opportunity to ensure that their voice is heard.
“The full scale of crime in rural areas has never before been assessed and whilst official figures show rural crime, like crime in general, is decreasing, we are concerned about the wider implications on people and communities.
“A clear picture of the issues will help to shape the delivery of both local and national services as by completing the survey, people can really have their say on how crime affects them and what they expect from local police and their partners involved in community safety.”
Focused on crime and policing in rural areas generally as well as farm-related crime, the survey will be open until Wednesday, 24 June. To take part, visit: http://www.nationalruralcrimenetwork.net/survey?member=Nottinghamshire
