Rural patrols increased in Rushcliffe after farm thefts

Officers from Rushcliffe South Neighbourhood Policing Team and Roads Crime Team have been on patrol in rural locations across the region.

Patrols have increased at night following a spate of GPS tracking systems being stolen from agricultural vehicles where offenders have gained entry by going across fields to access farms and machinery.

Police in Rushcliffe said:

‘Officers will be visiting local farms to offer security advice but members of the public are also asked to remain vigilant to suspicious activity in rural areas.

Farmers are asked to bear in mind a number of security deterrents:

• Remove devices where possible when not in use.
• Mark your property with a postcode and record serial numbers.
• Ensure the software is up to date, and marked with security warning stickers.
• Where you can’t remove a device, consider a lock or an alarm.

Please help us by calling 101 with any information you have about suspicious activity, or call 999 if you witness a crime in action.
