Set to stamp out crime in regional areas, the New South Wales Police force is teaming up with local communities across the state this Rural Crime Week.
Launched by Regional NSW Field Operations Deputy Commissioner Gary Warboys and Minister for Police Troy Grant in Wagga this week.
The preventative initiative will highlight strategies to help protect local farmers and their properties
Deputy Commissioner Warboys says by engaging farmers and locals, they can build resilience in the community and successfully prosecute those who do the wrong thing.
Investigators will target crimes like illegal hunting, trespassing, fire arm theft and threats to bio security; because rural crime is more than just stock and property theft.
Rural Crime Security Assessment workshops will be held across the State, locals encouraged to RSVP to attend one at Coomealla Memorial Sporting Club on September 20th.
