Cheshire Police is reinforcing its commitment to the rural community by focusing on 100 days of action.

The initiative, which launched on 7 August, aims to raise awareness and highlight what the force is doing every day to tackle this important issue. The Force also aims to reduce the number of victims of rural crime throughout Cheshire.

The initiative will be implemented in different areas across the county, on each of the 100 days. From crime prevention advice to encouraging members of the public to join the policing family and get involved with cutting rural crime, the 100 days of Action will provide valuable and effective rural initiatives.

Building on the work already done within the community, officers will be attending a number of events such as CEASAR IT — a plant and agricultural machinery marking day, where Knutsford Farmers will join forces with Police to crack down on rural crime.

They will also be attending this year's sheepdog trials, and Peover Angling and Game Fair where they will be offering wildlife crime prevention advice, engaging with the farming and rural community, and promoting farming, tractor and machine security. There will also be the chance to sign up for watch schemes and find out more about the work we do.

Police and Crime Commissioner for Cheshire, John Dwyer said: "Crime affecting rural communities should never be underestimated and is why I have made it a priority in my Police & Crime Plan. Suspicious or unusual activity should never be ignored. We are calling for members of our communities to work together with us to help provide safer rural communities."

DCC Janette McCormick said: "As part of our We're Here commitments to the community we want to remind those living in rural areas that we're not just here for our towns and cities. By highlighting the good work our rural officers already do and engaging with the community to help them prevent themselves becoming a victim of crime, we can build on the relationship we have and, more importantly, tackle an issue that has such an impact not only on people themselves but in some cases their livelihoods."
