North Yorkshire Police

A problem-solving approach to tackling rural crime has seen the number of poaching incidents drop by almost a third in the space of a year, a report has revealed.

The report by the office of North Yorkshire and York Police, Fire and Crime Commissioner Zoe Metcalfe highlights how since the launch of North Yorkshire Police’s Operation Figaro last year, 241 individuals have received warning letters and 41 have received Criminal Behaviour Warnings.

A further five Criminal Behaviour Notices, which act like an injunction, and a Criminal Behaviour Order have also been issued, alongside “proactive correspondence” to all those issued with notices and warnings to remind them of the conditions they must not breach.
