National Rural Crime Survey 2018
The National Rural Crime Survey was launched yesterday by the National Rural Crime Network.
They need as many people as possible to complete the survey to get aggregated data for Durham. This information is important to get a true picture of crime and anti-social behaviour in rural communities across county Durham and Darlington. It is important to see what has changed since the 2015 survey. It will help to provide a clear picture of what has improved, what challenges remain and what more can be done to make a difference to the lives of those who live and work in our rural communities.
Ron Hogg, Police, Crime and Victims’ Commissioner will be using the results of the 2018 survey to help formulate his next Rural Crime Statement which he plans to publish in the autumn. This will help to deliver effective, appropriate and efficient services to our Rural Communities. The results will also feed into the National Police Chiefs’ Council’s Rural Affairs National Strategy for 2018-2021 which is also due to be launched later this year.
The survey is now available at www.nationalruralcrimenetwork.net and is open until Sunday 10 June 2018.
