As part of its Rural Focus Campaign, West Merica Police is holding talks on rural crime with Commissioner John Campion next month.

Members of the public will be able to discuss any concerns on a one-to-one basis and there will also be crime prevention tips and advice from specialist rural and business officers and local policing teams, as well as the chance to grab a Smartwater crime prevention pack.

Commissioner, John Campion, said: "The impact of rural crime isn’t to be understated, which is why I am focusing on making rural communities feel safer and less isolated.

"These events have already provided people with a great opportunity to have their concerns heard and for action to be taken.

"I would encourage people to take advantage of these opportunities, where you will be listened to, and you can gain some valuable advice to help protect your home or business."

The Shropshire meeting will be held on Tuesday, February 4, from 5.30-7.30pm at Culmington Village Hall, Craven Arms.

Other meetings are taking place across Worcester and Hereford.
