Wealden Police say “There’s a variety of things you can do to protect your property, land and livestock”
– Equipment and tool security can be a particular issue for rural businesses and farms. To keep your belongings safe, lock equipment away in a secure building or part of a building when not in use.
– A good standard of building security is very important in rural areas, especially for outbuildings that may not be visited for weeks at a time. Farmhouses and other rural properties are the same as any other home, so general home security advice still applies.
– Take a good look around your property boundary for any potential places where it could be made more secure.
All incidents of illegal activity should be reported to the appropriate authority as soon as possible.
If you are able to, make a note of any vehicle details and a description of the people involved.
