Rural crime

Welcome to the rural affairs team page.

Created in 2018 the team’s primary aim is to increase our rural communities' confidence in policing by: problem solving issues in partnership, instigating preventative initiatives and undertaking community engagement events - so we can listen to the public and explain what action we are undertaking

Your Rural Crime Team

The strategy and priorities for the team are based on the 2018 National Police Chiefs Rural Affairs Strategy, this ensures we are directly linked to the national agenda and provides consistency when we are operating with our regional colleagues on cross-border issues.

The Rural Affairs Team consists of four Rural affairs Officers; Kerry Whitting, Martin Beck, Julian Fry and Chris Collins they operate at a tactical level, coordinating activity with the local policing teams and strategic partners and are supported by a dedicated Rural Engagement Team who are Special Constables.
