Crimestoppers launches campaign to combat rural crime

A social media campaign to combat crime affecting rural communities has been launched by Thames Valley Crimestoppers.

The 'Scene it. Herd it. Speak up about it. Anonymously' campaign will spread its message across Facebook, Twitter and alert systems.

It will direct the public to a webpage discussing rural crime including poaching, hare-coursing and the theft of oil, metal and machinery and how to safely give information anonymously through Crimestoppers.

The charity is teaming up with volunteer committees, law enforcement agencies and rural partners to raise awareness about and fight rural crime.

It is also running a blog at blog.crimestoppers-uk.org to update people on the campaign.
