NFU Mutual, the UK's leading rural insurer, has announced the return of its annual Country Crime Fighters Awards 2014.
With a cash fund of up to £6,500 available, the Awards will help to recognise and celebrate unsung rural heroes by providing them with financial and practical support to help fund anti-crime initiatives.
All people have to do is visit www.nfumutual.co.uk/crimefighters and tell the insurer in 300 words or less why they or their community group deserve to win an award and how they have helped to reduce crime in their local area.
The rural insurer has introduced new categories to attract an even more widespread audience of people who dedicate their time to reducing rural crime in their local communities.
The categories for 2014 are:
- Social Media Crime Prevention
- Equestrian Crime Prevention
- Farm Crime Prevention
- Local Community Crime Prevention
- Wildlife Crime Prevention
- Rural Business Crime Prevention
- Crime Prevention through Technology
The Country Crime Fighters Awards 2014 will engage with people from all over the country, as people nominate themselves or their community group for an award.
Following successful nomination, regional winners will compete for a place in the final and be invited to attend the awards ceremony in London with the chance to be crowned national winner.
The winner will also receive a trophy and a cheque for £1,500.
Regional winners will receive a trophy and £500.
Nominations can be submitted online at the Country Crime Fighters webpage. Nominations close on the 11th August 2014.
