Rural Crime Prevention
The Rural Crime Prevention Program aims to improve the lines of communication between local law enforcement agencies and the agricultural community.
The epidemic levels of metal theft and the continued rise in rural crimes such as illegal dumping, vandalism, meth labs and thefts of farm equipment, chemicals, livestock, and crops highlights the need for this effort.
By joining together and improving communication efforts we can take a significant bite out of rural crime.
