Shropshire Council is encouraging residents in rural areas to participate in the National Rural Crime Survey.
The NRCS is the largest ever survey into crime and anti-social behaviour (ASB) in rural areas ever to be launched in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. It is intended to discover how the police can better serve rural communities. The survey, launched by the National Rural Crime Network, is calling for people who work or live in rural areas to come forward and give their views on policing in their community, the impact crime and ASB has on them and their neighbours and to ultimately help shape the future of crime prevention and rural policing.
Shropshire Council is supporting this survey as we are keen to use the local feedback from this survey in our own policy and strategy development with partners and communities.
Anyone living or working in rural areas is encouraged to take part in the survey. You don’t need to have been a victim of crime to have a view on how the police work. To find out more this project visit the National Rural Crime Network website.
It should take between 10-15 minutes to complete and the survey is open until Wednesday 24th June 2015.
