Public urged to share crime stories
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.
