Police are urging Farmers and Building Site Managers to ensure their Farms and Sites are as secure as they can be across Broadland and North Norfolk. This warning comes following the seasonal increase in rural crime.
PC Andy Mason, Broadland Engagement Officer, said “Security measures include such things as making sure there are no gaps in perimeter fencing and the use of good quality lighting, especially at entry and exit points. Please remember to lock, secure and remove any keys from all buildings, outhouses and vehicles on leaving farms and sites overnight. Use large vehicles to block entry and exit points where possible. You could also consider the use of CCTV systems”.
The use of a messaging service such as Farm Watch and following @RuralCrimeNfk on Twitter for regular updates is also recommended.
If you see anything suspicious please call 101 or 999 if you believe a crime is in progress. Alternatively you can report an incident anonymously to CrimeStoppers 0800 555 111.
