Individuals who work in the agricultural sector may be encouraged to make greater use of metal gates
as part of a rural crime seminar taking place later this week.
Run by the Association of Chief Police Officers (ACPO), the meeting will address how crime is affecting rural communities across England and Wales.
It will be held on November 10th at the Kettering Conference Centre in Northamptonshire and is set to feature appearances from a number of key speakers, including representatives from the Environment Agency and the National Farmers Union.
Chief Constable Richard Crompton, ACPO lead for wildlife and rural crime, said: "It's a chance to share best practice and for farmers to learn how they can safeguard themselves against crime whilst influencing the future of policing in their communities."
Among the areas of discussion will be the rise in tractor thefts and how organised crime groups are earning large amounts of money to steal and export on an international scale.
