Priority reason: 20 Mar 2015

Farm Watch is a national initiative which was launched to tackle the rise in crime linked to farms. The scheme concentrates on providing crime prevention and security advice and guidance, has a messaging network to alert farms to current issues and alerts and raises awareness of the issues with posters and notices to act as a deterrent

The scheme was successfully launched in Autumn 2012 and new members continue to join up. Membership includes signing up to the community messaging service giving crime alerts and early warning information to members and high visibility signage for farm members to act as a deterrent

There is now a database of  members of the Farm Watch which continues to grow.
