Living safely in rural areas

Most of North Yorkshire is rural and, for this reason, the police work very hard to keep countryside crime to a minimum.

Below are some basic steps you can take to help secure your rural property:

  • Lock all gates to prevent access to your property
  • Lock and secure agricultural vehicles when not in use
  • Consider physical security devices such as immobilisers, alarms, enhanced lighting and CCTV
  • Encourage all users to store plant materials away after they have finished with them
