Police Connect – Rural Crime Reminder

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.

DC Andy Brown reminds you that a simple spray of florescent pink paint will make your batteries un-attractive to thieves.
Whilst the offenders are on your land looking for stolen batteries, what else are they looking at?
Are you leaving yourself vulnerable to further incidents?
We would encourage all subscribers to Property Mark your items. This can be as easy as post-coding items or using products like SelectaDNA or Smartwater which can be easily applied to smaller items which helps identify them, combined with clear signage- this will dissuade thieves.
