DCC Debbie Ford, NPCC lead for Rural and Wildlife Crime, states “I am proud to introduce the new three-year strategy for rural and wildlife crime. This strategy will build on the work undertaken to deliver the 2018 – 2021 strategy and the fantastic progress that has been made. I would like to thank everyone who has worked so hard over the last four years and acknowledge the professionalism, effort and commitment, which has been so apparent through the successes and achievements to date“.
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.
