Rural Task Force

The RTF is a specialist team made up of officers who are dedicated to tackling and investigating rural crime. They work closely with a number of partner agencies including the RSPCA, RSPB, Environment Agency and local authorities to address issues that blight communities including burglaries, livestock worrying and hare-coursing.

It is recognised that people living in rural areas may feel isolated so the team has developed more efficient means of communication such as Farm Watch, which ensures a quick way for residents to report and share information.
