2018 National Rural Crime Survey

The 2018 National Rural Crime Survey is underway

It’s 3 years since the last National Rural Crime Survey revealed the huge cost of crime to rural communities - both financial, at £800 million per year, and fear, with chronic under-reporting, anger and frustration at the Police and government.

The National Rural Crime Network produced a series of recommendations and, in many areas, the Police took steps to improve matters. So, now, we want to know what’s changed.

Do you think crime has gone up or down?
Do you feel safer?
What’s your view of the Police in your community?

In short, we want to know the true picture of crime and anti-social behaviour in rural communities across England and Wales - and the impact it has where you live or work.

Kent Police and Crime Commissioner, Matthew Scott is keen that as many people from rural parts of Kent have their say.

The survey is open for submissions until Sunday the 10th of June.
