Rural Crime Forum

The Police and Crime Commissioner’s (PCC) Rural Crime Forum aims to create a place for people to discuss issues around crime in rural communities and find solutions that meet the whole community’s needs.

Existing Farm, Horse and Neighbourhood Watch Schemes serve rural communities through the sharing of intelligence between the community and the police.

Join your local Community Watch Scheme:

Aims of the forum

Both the PCC and Avon and Somerset Police are committed to listening to all members of the community by:

  • Ensuring they develop a network of communications with rural communities across the whole of Avon and Somerset in a manner which meets the needs of the communities.
  • Simplifying and blending existing rural initiatives such as Farm, Horse and Neighbourhood Watch Schemes to ensure consistency and focus across the whole of the policing area.
  • Working in partnership with all rural communities to ensure the police response to crime is of the highest possible standard.
  • Seeking to reduce levels of rural crime and increase the trust and confidence in the policing service.
