Country Watch schemes connect those living and working in rural parts of the country to create communities that share information, develop communication networks and work with the police with the intention of reducing rural crime.
The main aims of the Country Watch scheme are to:
reduce local opportunities for crime and vandalism
reinforce community spirit so that everyone can contribute towards the protection of their property
introduce early warning systems in the farming and countryside areas
improve the intelligence flow between rural communities and police
