A special drop-in advice session was held in April 2018 on the Merevale Estate near Atherstone. The event was supported by the National Farmer’s Union, and was designed to specifically help and support local farmers and address issues regarding rural crime.
As well as meeting members of the local police Safer Neighbourhood Team, attendees could see demonstrations of new vehicle data tracking systems, obtain security advice and have power tools property marked.
The event was organised by Rural Crime Co-ordinator Carol Cotterill. Find out more about the work being done to combat rural crime at Warwickshire Rural Watch website: www.warwickshireruralwatch.co.uk.
