Advice on Rural Crime Prevention

Rural Crime Prevention

Machinery Theft

• Where possible, vehicles should be housed in a lockable garage or building, ideally with security lighting installed to the perimeter.
• Vehicles should always be locked when not in use, with the keys kept hidden and locked away in a secure location.
• Keep recordings or photographs of serial numbers and vehicles as these can be crucial in recovery, should the worse happen.
• Securing Quadbikes to a fixed point on the ground or something that takes time to remove will also act as a deterrent.
• Never leave the keys in the ignition.
• Keep gates to yards closed as open gates can be an open invitation to thieves.
• Install immobilisers, chip keys and trackers as these are a simple way to deter criminals or track vehicles.
• Install CCTV
