Warning signs up to protect Northumberland farms
Posted by Jason Nicholls.
Warning signs have been erected as part of a new project to step up the protection of farmland in Northumberland.
The police and local farmers are working together to implement a modern database-style security system, the Morpeth Herald reports.
Neighbourhood Policing Teams, crime prevention officers and community wardens from Safer Northumberland will carry out site visits in order to photograph and categorise farmers' equipment, vehicles and valuables.
Under the FarmWatch scheme, the photographs, along with serial numbers of the items, are then collated on a database. A CD of this information will then be given to farmers.
In addition, warning signs will be installed around the perimeter of land so potential trespassers know that property is marked.
Because items are categorised in this way, stolen items can be quickly traced and hopefully recovered.
"We are committed to ensuring that the needs of our rural communities are met and that we listen and act on their concerns. They are very much a priority for Northumbria Police and by working with our partners we will continue to ensure that all areas of the county remain safe places to live, work and visit," chief superintendent Mark Dennett told the newspaper.
