Thread: Rural Crime Survey - have your say!

    Rural Crime Survey - have your say!

    On the back of Yoda's post and the epidemic that is rural crime here's a link to the Rural Crime Survey:

    I think this post is a bit short notice as I believe it ends this week but have your say if your interested. The more information they gather will show the true extent of the problem.

    National Rural Crime Network?

    Sounds a bit like a body of people of a like mind are travelling around different locations, perhaps staying in caravans and stealing things. I don't believe that for a minute!

    Call me cynical, but have they made it as such so that folks don't bother?

    Well done for persisting, and I'll clear the decks and have a pot of coffee on to do it in the morning!

    It does take some getting through i must say! If you have been effected by rural crime it's worth persisting! I have to agree I feel it could have been more user friendly. Hopefully though the results will show the extent of the problem and it will have to be published.

    Apart from the local untouchables the main problem is the police being so under resourced. Let's hope it brings some change....

    I had to tell them that I had my security cameras stolen.

    Survey was completed. Surveys are all well and good. The main issue in rural areas is that these are the areas that are hit the most by cuts in police budgets.

    From a place not so long ago, when each village would have it's own police officer, we now have police stations not only non-existent in villages, but very much under threat - or already gone in many small towns. The result of this is that it's more than likely that any sort of rural crime that actually gets reported will be investigated (possibly) by an officer whose main work will be policing town estates and Saturday night drunks. Patrols in many rural areas are a fond memory. Speak to people of a certain age in rural areas and they'll tell you who their local police officer was by name. Now you won't hardly get the same one twice.

    I have always advocated reporting every crime to the police. So that, however unimportant it may seem, the picture builds up and the police can act on it. However, the police are having to prioritise so much these days that rural issues bear very little importance when compared to the weight of issues the towns and cities have.

    This is not really the police's fault. They can only do so much with diminishing resources. However, having a National Rural Crime Network, which will no doubt have important meetings and conduct surveys can only help. Or at least give the impression that it helps!
