Rural Crime – protect your assets.
As the dark nights continue to draw in, opportunist thieves target rural properties more and more. The cost of rural crime to the UK economy reached £42.5 million in 2015. So why is the countryside becoming increasing attractive to thieves? According to the National Farmers’ Union Mutual: “the structure of the countryside has changed considerably: improvements in road networks – particularly the motorway network – mean that few places in the countryside are now truly isolated. Thieves can be many miles away from the scene of a crime in a couple of hours. The boom in international trade has also opened opportunities to hide stolen machinery and vehicles in the thousands of lorries and containers which go through our ports to mainland Europe every day.”
Security measures can help protect your premises and help to deter thieves. According to the National Farmers’ Union Mutual, most rural crime takes place at night and security measures like motion sensor lighting, Intruder alarm, robust fences and CCTV are all a good deterrent.
