Macclesfield Express - - CHARITY ROUND-UP -

RU­RAL com­mu­ni­ties around Macclesfield are urged to share in­ci­dents of crime in their area on a new web­site.

Macclesfield Po­lice have is­sued warn­ings about ru­ral crime af­ter lambs and ewes were stolen from a field at Dandy Farm on Mill Lane in Adling­ton.

Now the Na­tional Ru­ral Crime Net­work has launched a web­site to help the public, po­lice and com­mu­nity safety prac­ti­tion­ers to share in­for­ma­tion that can be used to de­velop pol­icy and best prac­tice against ru­ral crime.

The Na­tional Ru­ral Crime Net­work in­volves 29 Po­lice and Crime Com­mis­sion­ers and their Po­lice Forces across Eng­land and Wales.

It was set up to pro­mote a bet­ter un­der­stand­ing and en­sure the ef­fec­tive shar­ing of best prac­tice in re­la­tion to deal­ing with ru­ral crime and an­ti­so­cial be­hav­iour.

Ru­ral Ser­vices Net­work chief ex­ec­u­tive Gra­ham Biggs MBE said: “Crime is a per­sis­tent prob­lem in many ru­ral com­mu­ni­ties and we be­lieve this web­site will help bring peo­ple to­gether to com­bat it.”

To reg­is­ter a crime or for in­for­ma­tion go to the web­site at www.na­tion­al­ru­ral­crimenet­work.net.
