Rural crime is to come under the spotlight at a Rural Crime Conference co-hosted by Notts Police and Crime Commissioner Paddy Tipping and the county’s Crimestoppers.
Taking place at Newark Showground on 12th-13th November, it is the second conference to be held with a view to raising awareness of rural crime, including plant and machinery theft, and how it can best be tackled.
Commissioner Tipping commented: “Rural theft costs many millions of pounds in the UK every year, leading to loss of farming business and an adverse impact on our communities’ purses through increased costs. In 2012 alone, it was calculated to cost the UK over £42 million.”
“Contact us on 101 to report unusual or suspicious activity.”
