    I do alot of work with rural crime.


    Get posters from your local Force HQ, ask about the Force SMS text messaging system - you should have one, set up networks within Deer Management Groups, Horse watch, farm watch etc.

    In my own experience the poachers use their time on the ground to gather intelligence on what else isnt nailed down, in order to return a few weeks later and take what they can (quads, plant, hand tools etc)


    Pass any sightings to your contacts and the Police dont sit on information, the last thing you should do is wait till morning, act when its happening....
