Rural crime in England reaches eight-year high of £46m .. what can you do?
1) Firstly Prevention: put some security on those vulnerable remote possessions, a police “secured by design approved” uWatch Cube. No Mains? No WiFi? No problem.
Fix a Cube to the gate of the field where your flock is or on the cattle grid and you will know within 45 seconds if that gate was opened or if someone is on the move at 3.00 am in the morning.
Install a Cube, inside your shipping container to protect those quad bikes or workshop to know when someone is after your chainsaws, or in the tractor you left in the field overnight.
2) Get 102, the app that turns your mountains of emails, calls and social media posts into a slick local “Watch” organisation that is fully integrated with the rest of the country and generates big data. Your local organiser or police will receive this intelligence in under 5 seconds from you hitting “save”, without a phone call significantly reducing their workload.
3) Use The Tool Register or The Tack Register to record your valuable possessions and to remove the market for stolen goods. Then, if you were to become a victim of theft you can give the police actual evidence of what was stolen PLUS other users will be notified all over the country so your property will be harder to sell on all in a matter of seconds.
The e-CID (electronic crime intelligence data) system would give the opportunity for members of the public who have registered to directly report crime intelligence to front line officers.
This will provide an effective and instantaneous response to crimes that are in progress.
Hare Coursing, fly tipping, trespass, suspicious vehicles, whatever misfortune.
No more waiting for 101 calls just to receive a crime number.
