When you are out and about in the countryside, your eyes, ears and information are invaluable in helping us prevent and disrupt crime in rural communities. If you notice suspicious behaviour or something you see just doesn’t feel right, report it.
Thanks to a recent report of a suspicious car, three men were arrested near High Hurstwood in the Wealden district. The men were found crawling along a hedgerow and, after running off from officers, they were arrested on suspicion of burglary and going equipped for burglary.
Our rural PCSOs are continuing their proactive work, liaising with farmers and rural businesses, offering crime prevention advice and offering property marking, including the delivery of property marking tools along with instructions on how to use them.
Your information matters in protecting property and helping you and others stay safe. If you see anything suspicious or out of place, report it.
