People living and working in rural communities have been invited to a conference aimed at thwarting countryside crime.
Countryside crime in Lancashire and has fallen by almost nine per cent in the last year but guests will be shown how to protect themselves.
Supt Andy Webster said: “Rural crime can be very costly for the victims, affecting them not just personally but also having financial implications that can affect their livelihoods.
“Due to the remote location of rural properties, it can be easy for residents and workers to develop a false sense of security – so crime prevention is not always their top focus. Thieves are aware of this and that there is less chance they will be seen.
The event is at Hutton headquarters on Monday March 11 between 9.30am and 4pm. To attend call 01772 413935.
