Police tackle rural crime
PUBLISHED: 10:00 28 July 2015
POLICE are working to reduce rural crime in Cheddar by signing people up to farm and horse watch schemes.
Anyone running a farm or stables in the village can request a visit from officers who can provide crime prevention advice.
The farm watch scheme aims to improve communication between police and businesses through a text and email alert system.
PCSO Matt Hawker said: “The scheme relies on farmers working together, and with us, by getting involved to help share information you can show the criminals that you are being proactive in tackling crime.”
To request a visit, email SomWestNPTSedgemoor@avonandsomerset.pnn.police.uk
