Northumbria Police’s dedicated rural policing team has vowed to maintain momentum and continue to hit criminals hard after receiving landmark funding.

The team tasked with preventing and tackling rural acquisitive crime, wildlife and poaching offences was formed in June 2020, and has already made great efforts in protecting rural communities.

The team have recovered more than £1 million worth of stolen agricultural equipment and efforts have helped cut poaching offences by nearly 50% in the past two and a half years.

As a result, the force has become the first in the country to be awarded Safer Streets funding – specifically to fight rural crime and protect the North East’s most isolated communities.
