Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner Hardyal Dhindsa is urging anyone living or working in the county’s rural towns and villages to make time to share their views and play a positive part in the response to rural crime and antisocial behaviour by completing the 2018 National Rural Crime Survey.
The survey and further information can be found here www.derbyshire-pcc.gov.uk/RuralCrimeSurvey
The survey has been adapted specifically for Derbyshire residents from the 2018 National Rural Crime Survey, being carried out by the National Rural Crime Network. It is designed to provide the Commissioner a clearer picture of rural criminality in the county, preventative measures that are being taken by members of the rural community and identify particular problems in different areas of the County.
A similar survey was carried out in 2015 and the Commissioner is keen to see what changes have occurred since then.
Mr Dhindsa said: “We really do want to get it right for our rural communities and spare hardworking families and business owners the misery of dealing with crime. Our new Rural Crime Team and Wildlife Crime Officers have improved relationships with farmers, agricultural businesses, residents and traders and this has helped to increase reporting of crime but we need to reach everybody and give everyone a chance of airing their views.”
Please share this email with all contacts, families or friends who may have an interest in rural communities.
Whatever your views – positive or negative – we want to hear them. Make your voice heard.
