Can you help beat rural crime? Community intelligence campaign launch

A&SC have launched a new Rural Crime Community Intelligence Campaign recently. The campaign is being run jointly with the independent charity Crimestoppers with the aim of encouraging people to provide information in the fight against livestock theft.

Inspector Jo Mines, who currently leads the Rural Crime Team, said: “Livestock theft, and rural crime in general, affects the livelihoods of farmers, smallholders and rural businesses.

“We are asking rural communities to help us by providing information and intelligence about suspected crime in their area. We know not everyone is comfortable having contact with us, but in that instance please do get in touch with Crimestoppers if you have information that can help.”

Gordon Chisholm, Regional Manager for Crimestoppers South West, said: “Many people think that we are part of the police or a TV programme but we are neither, we are an independent charity, which allows anyone to pass on information about crime anonymously. “We cannot trace or record any call and we never ask for your name or where you live, no one will ever know where the information came from and you could qualify for a reward of up to £1,000 if your information leads to an arrest and charge.”

A&SC added: “We want to hear from anyone who has information about any suspicious or potentially criminal activity in their area, for example - details of people/vehicles seen behaving suspiciously, vehicles moving livestock at odd times of the day or night, potentially stolen goods or animals being offered for sale either to the public or at markets, sightings of stolen vehicles we might put out an alert for.

“No matter how small or insignificant people may think information is, it may be a vital piece of a jigsaw that helps us fill in the gaps and either prevent a crime or bring offenders to justice”
