NATIONAL RURAL CRIME SURVEY (2018)
Many thanks to everyone who has taken part. If you have not yet completed the survey and wish to do so, submissions accepted until Sunday 10 June 2018.
The link to the survey is here: http://www.nationalruralcrimenetwork.net/research/internal/2018survey/
Residents of rural communities in Lincolnshire are being asked to help shape the future of their communities by taking part in one of the largest surveys undertaken in rural Britain.
The National Rural Crime Survey was last completed three years ago and revealed the huge financial cost of crime to rural communities – at £800 million per year.
The survey has the backing of Lincolnshire Police and Crime Commissioner Marc Jones who was behind the county joining the Network. In 2015 Lincolnshire was not included in the survey.
He believes it could help police, local authorities and Government officials better understand the issues facing rural communities.
Publicity around the survey has already been done but with only a few weeks to go until it closes we’re keen to encourage Lincolnshire residents to complete the poll. As such, where appropriate in your interactions with the public – whether it be on social media or face-to-face – we’d be grateful if you took the time to remind them of how to complete.
