NPCC Wildlife Crime and Rural Affairs Strategies

 

On the 25th July 2018, the National Police Chief’s Council (NPCC) launched the first strategies to tackle wildlife and rural crime across the UK. Over the previous 14 months the Wildlife Crime Policing Strategy and Rural Affair’s Strategy had been developed through inclusive consultation with police and partners. The contribution and feedback from police and partners was essential in helping to shape and create a strategic direction, which was agreed by all Chief Constables in the UK as the way forward.
 
This is a significant step forward to safeguarding our wildlife and strengthening safe and prosperous communities. These strategies have the support of the Association of Police and Crime Commissioners (APCC), the Home Office and the College of Policing. It is important that all police and partners work together moving forward to make these strategies a reality.
 
Both strategies were launched at the NPCC Rural Affairs Summit in Harrogate, North Yorkshire. 
 
The strategies are attached below:
