Devon & Cornwall Police are supporting a survey of farmers and landowners as part of a research project with the Universities of Plymouth and Winchester. It aims to examine farmers’ experiences of crime and policing and is being funded by the Seale Hayne Educational Trust.
They are hoping to reach as many people as possible across the South West with the project’s aims being to map the nature and location of crime in rural places, analyse the impact of crime, and fear of crime, on farming; and examine ways to evaluate and improve farm security. The information from the report compiled from this survey will be used to inform and shape future Devon and Cornwall Police approaches to engaging with and policing rural communities.
For the information taken from the survey to be effective, as many replies as possible are required. The survey will be open for about two months. Please find attached a flyer for the survey and a separate link here https://plymouth.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/rural-crime-survey-final
