TO help target and prevent agricultural and rural crime the police are joining forces with the National Farmers Union and Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire Chamber of Commerce.
They are to hold events at Bakewell market to speak to farmers about farm security and local Farm and Horse Watch schemes as well as giving an opportunity for farmers to speak to representatives from Smartwater, and CESAR (Construction and Equipment Security and Registration), a security marking system designed specifically for plant and farm machinery.
The events will take place at Bakewell’s Agricultural Business Centre on Monday January 9, 16, 23 and 30.
Community Safety Sergeant Jon Lloyd said: “We would encourage as many people as possible to learn more about how they can protect their business and property.
“The aim of the event is to talk to and show farmers what they can do to reduce their chances of becoming a victim and what measures they can take to protect themselves and help prevent rural crime.”
