Farm Watch is now being set up in the surrounding Villages. The aim of the scheme is to give local farmers and occupants of rural properties a crime ring information system. The system is based on a telephone ring round scheme which local Police put information on which is then delivered to each farm premises. The information can be anything from recent criminal activity at farm premises to a suspicious vehicle or person sighted on farm property.
During the coming months every farm premises will be visited and the scheme will be fully explained and offered to each premises. Every person who signs up to the scheme will be asked to pass on information to surrounding premises and will get posters to put up at the entrance to their property and be given a information pack.
