Rural Crime Awareness Event

Front Street, Alston

Officers and PCSOs will be visiting Alston as part of a rural crime action day.

Officers and representatives from partner agencies will be at the Market Place, Alston, on 8th November between 10am and 2pm to speak with the public about preventing rural crime.

PC Helen Branthwaite, the Wildlife, Rural and Environmental Crime Co-ordinator for Cumbria, said: “This is a great opportunity for local people in rural areas to meet their local policing team as well as partner agencies.

“This is also an opportunity for police to give advice and discuss issues with the public on how they can prevent crime and as a community work together to tackle it.”

Cumbria’s Police and Crime Commissioner Peter McCall said: “It is really good to hear that there are more and more opportunities such as this – where the local police and other partners go to the community – especially in the more rural areas like Alston, where otherwise people might not get the chance to speak to their local officers and raise any concerns.  I would urge people to take advantage of this, go along for a chat, and you may also learn some useful  tips on what you can do to safeguard against becoming a victim of crime yourself.”
