Still time to take part in Rural Crime Survey

Crime is a key issue throughout the countryside but the extent of it is only part of the problem.

For many people in rural areas, whether they have fallen victim to crime or not, the fear of crime alone can have a damaging effect on their mental health.
That’s why the Countryside Alliance is once again tackling the issue with its 2022 Rural Crime Survey.

All responses are anonymous and are crucial to helping the Alliance direct its campaigns, ensuring the voice of rural communities is heard in the corridors of power.

A Countryside Alliance spokesman said: “As a voice for rural Britain, we must continue to put pressure on the Government, police and crime commissioners, and police forces on their approach to tackling rural crime.
“The results of the 2021 survey showed that seven in ten people reported an increase in crime over the last 12 months. It is clear from last year’s results that there is a lot to do in tackling rural crime and working with communities to ensure the impact of it is lessened.”

The survey will ask about any crimes that have been committed against you, including ones that were not reported to the police as well as how being a victim of crime made you feel and any thoughts on whether the police responded appropriately.
The survey is open to those who live, work or regularly visit rural areas in England, Scotland and Wales, with a view to highlighting the true level of rural crime.

It should only take 10 minutes, and all responses are anonymous. The survey will close on Sunday January, 22nd.
