Rural Crime: Serious, Organised and International Report Statistics

  • 19 March 2024

Take a look at some of the key statistics that reveal the hike in rural crimes. These figures emphasise the evolving nature of rural crime, highlighting a shift towards organised, high-impact offences.

Understanding these patterns enables us to collaborate and build focused solutions for a better, more secure rural future.

We would also like to thank our partners – The CLA, Countryside Alliance, Historic England, Rural Services Network, Crimestoppers Trust, and NFU (National Farmers’​ Union), for their constant support and involvement.
