On Wednesday 25th April, the Rural Crime Project, funded by the Police and Crime Commissioner, in partnership with the NFU and Warwickshire Police, are holding an event specifically to help and support local farmers and address issues regarding rural crime.
It will be held at and with the kind permission of the Merevale Estate, near Atherstone; access will only be available from the Coleshill Road entrance on the B4116.
The event is between 11am and 2pm, with food from a local farm, so come along and have lunch with us and see the equipment and information available.
We are also providing the opportunity for farmers to bring along their power tools etc to be property marked by the police during the event.
There is also the opportunity to have your vehicles equipped with Caesar Datatag if you wish. Contact the Rural Crime Officer if you would like to bring along your vehicle(s) for this to be done on the day, contact details below.
In attendance will be the Police & Crime Commissioner for Warwickshire, Sgt Neil Pearsall and your local beat managers for the area, so any issues or concerns that you may have, can be discussed.
There will also be details on :
- A new tracker, which can be used on multiple vehicles.
- Crime prevention for around the farm and farmhouse.
- Book a crime prevention visit for your farm.
- A new initiative to support farmers with regard to vehicles and implements.
We know how busy it is on the farm, especially now with the warmer weather here and the land drying out, but this is an important opportunity and is being put on to help and support you. Please spare a couple of hours to come and see what is available, how we can help and take the opportunity to discuss any issues with the police. If you are working on the fields, come down in your tractor and see what’s available.
If you want any further information or want to book in a vehicle to be marked on the day, please email email@example.com.
We would also be grateful if you could advise that you would like to come along so that we can cater for numbers.
Look forward to seeing you on Wednesday.
Rural Crime Officer, North Warwickshire, Warwickshire Police.
