Hare Coursing and other rural concerns
As PCSO Turnbull's comments above Page 4), Wiltshire Police response is an Operation called OP Atremis. This operation Links actions and resources from Wiltshire Police, Rural Crime Partnership and Farmwatch.
Theft from outbuilding (Farms and residential sheds)
Summary: As part of rural patrols we are focusing on theft of metals/tools and fuels. Looking out for unusual activity and vehicle and building a picture of those criminals out and about not only stealing items but causing damage to premises in the act of theft
Theft of lead from Churches
Wiltshire Police has had reports of theft from lead from church roofs. We will be focusing on reminding local communities of the need for vigilance and regular checks of any remote buildings they own or care take, so that swift investigations can take place. It's time to review your security and replace any defective equipment. Over the coming months we will be working with partner agencies such as Trading Standards to improve investigation opportunities where they exist.
