A REPORT has shown that County Durham is making rapid progress in its fight against rural crime.
County Durham and Darlington Police and Crime Commissioner Joy Allen has welcomed the latest Rural Crime Report by leading rural insurer NFU Mutual, which shows the cost of rural crime in County Durham fell by almost 30 per cent in 2021 to £260k.
As was the case in 2021, County Durham remains one of few forces nationally to see a reduction in rural crime claims of agricultural vehicles machinery and livestock thefts.
