Academy & CCW preventing & reducing farming & rural crime

The Academy welcomed the opportunity to work with Cambridgeshire Countryside Watch (CCW) in January 2022 to support the focus of the group of preventing and reducing opportunities for farming and rural crime across that county.

Founded in 1993, the focus of CCW is to help farming communities reduce crime so the Academy developed and delivered a session and documents that the CCW committee members can use to promote good practice and provide advice to its 660 members with the support of Cambridgeshire Constabulary and Cambridgeshire OPCC.

The Academy was able to highlight a new section on rural crime prevention advice on the SBD website as well as referencing current reports, research and UK-wide experiences from partners including NFU Mutual and NaVCIS.
