Following the publication of the National Rural Crime Survey in 2015 and hearing some local concerns, PCC Ron Hogg asked residents in our rural communities about issues affecting them.
There were three public Rural Crime Issues Forums held in the following areas:
- Thursday 10 December 2015 - Stanhope
- Tuesday 19 January 2016 - Hurworth
- Tuesday 2 February 2016 - Barnard Castle
Taking these views into account, and working with the Police, Ron has developed a Rural Crime and Policing Statement. This sets out the issues facing rural communities, and what the Police are doing, or considering doing, to address them.
