NPCC Wildlife Crime and Rural Affairs Strategies

On 1st September 2022 the new National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC) Wildlife & Rural Crime Strategy for 2022-2025 was launched.

The purpose of the NPCC strategy for Rural and Wildlife Crime is to provide a framework through which policing, and its partners can work together, to tackle the most prevalent threats and emerging issues which have the greatest impact on our rural communities or wildlife. Alongside the successful delivery of this strategy there will be a strong focus on creating a more enduring policing model for rural and wildlife crime.

Combining our efforts across rural and wildlife crime prevention and enforcement is the optimum approach and the NPCC will seek to deliver this sustainable model within the lifetime of this strategy.

The NPCC Wildlife & Rural Crime Strategy 2022-2025 is currently undergoing accessibility alterations and will return shortly.
