I am keen to ensure that people who live in Cheshire's rural areas have an opportunity to act as the eyes and ears of our communities and that the Constabulary works together with them to tackle rural and wildlife crime across the county.

Rural communities are important to me. I am very conscious that rural crime has a devastating impact on everyone involved, that's why I've placed rural crime as one of my priorities in my Police & Crime Plan.

In my opinion it's vital that the Constabulary understand the definition of rural crime so they know how best to tackle it, and so they can meet the expectations of those who are a victim of rural crime. I want to make our rural communities feel included and not isolated when it comes to policing. In the same way, I want to make Cheshire inhospitable for criminals.

I'd like people in rural communities to get involved with how their area is policed.

Rural people also need to feel like their voices are heard, and my commitment to them is: if they inform us of any issues, the police will listen.

People can get involved by becoming a mounted volunteers — more information about this can be found on my website. Another way to be kept in the loop of what's going on would be to encourage people in your community to register for Neighbourhood Alert, and become part of Rural Watch.
