Rural Watch is a free scheme set up to support communities in the fight against rural crime.

If you live, work or visit rural communities you are our eyes and ears. Join our police officers and a network of people who share information about crimes in rural areas.

The main aims of the Rural Watch scheme are to:

  • reduce local opportunities for crime and vandalism
  • reinforce community spirit so that everyone can contribute towards the protection of their property
  • introduce early warning systems in the farming and countryside areas
  • improve the intelligence flow between rural communities and police

Together we can actively take steps to prevent crime, report suspicious incidents and provide education and reassurance on the issues that matter to the most to rural communities.
