    Nearly there!

    We made it known we were testing cctv alarm equipment to alert patrols to incidents occurring.

    The process has been very involved but we should soon be ready to launch our not for profit Community Safety operation.

    It can benefit the entire rural economy!

    The launch will provide members with night and audio capable cctv.

    That…[Read more]

    How to alert Police if it’s dangerous to speak after calling 999 or 112.

    The emergency services use a ‘silent solution’ to help filter out accidental calls
    It has been in existence for the past 15 years but very few people know about it
    If talking could put you in more danger you can dial ’55’ when given the option
    If there is no response, the…[Read more]

    Spending the week in north Norfolk and keeping an eye out.

    Have to say the low level stuff isn’t being seen. Is that simply because issues like fly tipping are being better managed?

    Or

    Because it’s better hidden?

    Or

    Because crime and disorder is a bigger problem and better organised?

    Farmers are one of the most security conscious and observant trade/business groups existing.

    However, they are mainly left alone in managing their safety and security. All other industry groups in Britain have a security structure except Farming. Yes there is a giant insurance provider offering advice but there is absolutely no strategic or…[Read more]

    Two issues, 1 is URGENT.

    1 URGENT!
    At about 1700 hrs on 18 5 19 whilst leaving Wessington, Derbyshire, and driving east on the A615, a group of 6-8 males were seen on foot walking west towards Wessington. All were late teens/early 20s, wore black/dark clothing with one in a grey/black disruptive pattern type camouflage zipper bomber type…[Read more]

    Borrowed this from Midland Farmer.

    So sad because much of this offending is preventable by adopting relatively simple procedures.

    “More than two-thirds of farmers fell victim to rural crime last year – prompting calls for renewed efforts to combat criminals in the countryside.

    Some 69% of growers and livestock producers were targeted by c…[Read more]

    Here’s proof that TFU’s template works.

    Open the link to see that huge reductions in crime were achieved by my team.

    The context was semi rural and if these results have bean the case once, they can again. And it isn’t difficult!

    We reduced burglary by 20%,…[Read more]

    Policing Works.

    Shame this happened in the first place. We’d say offending of this type wouldn’t have occurred with TFU patrols in the area to deter.

    Six children have been arrested on suspicion of animal cruelty after a group were seen throwing stones at sheep in Hampshire.

    Police are investigating following two incidents of animal cruelty,…[Read more]

    Regardless of when this occurred the Police must be informed. I’ll pass the message to the mobile number provided.

      This could be dynamite.

      I put the info on our Facebook page but not sure if it’ll have found its way on to this site.

      I have an email from the Police in Staffs to the NFU asking about specific crime levels in that county. The NFU respond by staying there isn’t much of a problem!

      Who is driving around close to your farm, your stock, your equipment?

      Are you sure they’re not out spotting to steal?

      These evil types are there and doing these things constantly.

      There is little to prevent them.

      Little except TFU.

      Now we can sit back in retired peace and security watching daytime tv knowing these crimes won’t touch us. We’…[Read more]

      How do you know hostile surveillance isn’t being carried out on your livelihood and an attack or theft planned?

      Consider that every theft involves a degree of criminal planning. Such attacks or tbefts are unlikely to be opportunistic.

      The Farmers Union is that presence to keep you safe.
