Residents living or working in rural parts of the Melton borough are being urged to have their input into the largest ever survey into crime and anti-social behaviour (ASB) in rural areas launched in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
Supported by Leicestershire Police and Leicestershire’s Police and Crime Commissioner Sir Clive Loader, the survey has been launched by the National Rural Crime Network and aims to find out how the police can better serve rural communities.
People are being encouraged to give their views on policing in their community, the impact crime and anti-social behaviour has on them and their neighbours and to ultimately help shape the future of crime prevention and rural policing.
The survey, which is taking place with support from the Home Office, aims to build a body of information to improve national awareness of crime in rural areas as well as provide a clearer picture of attitudes towards crime to help inform Government and local policy.
The survey will be open until Wednesday, June 24.
