On 30th April 4Policing managed an online discussion concerning Rural Crime. The debate centred on Twitter with the #RuralCrime hashtag.

The session was extremely lively and we were really pleased to have the support of the NFU and Farmers Weekly Magazine. We had contributions from many rural communities, farmers and landowners as well as the various ‘Watch’ groups up and down the country. It was a great opportunity for everyone to network and build up their  own contacts as well as ‘tweeting’ their your own views or questions.
