Our ambition is to provide a neighbourhood policing service of which you, and we, can be proud. Prevention will be at the heart of our work, through well-informed collaborative problem-solving, building participation and strengthening the communities we serve. We will remain part of those communities, known and accessible to you, and policing in a way that both prevents harm and enhances your trust in us.
Our approach is shaped by five key themes: accessibility, prevention, relationships, vulnerability, relationships and partnerships. These will underpin all areas of our service and form the basis of our neighbourhood policing offer.
We have seen a significant reduction in reported harecoursing activity, believed in part because dedicated Rural Crime Action Team (RCAT) team now has ownership. Work continues locally around community reassurance and to support RCAT. Agreed that RCAT take ownership of continued tackling of harecoursing.

Acquisitive crime: We are seeing limited reporting, however professional judgement and knowledge from PC Richardson has identified it as an issue to tackle.
