Farmers urged to lock it, or lose it


The NFU working in partnership with Cumbria Constabulary and Carrs Billington have launched their 'Lock it or Lose it' campaign.

104 quad bikes were stolen in Cumbria in the months between November 2019 and October 2020, with 27 taken in 1 month alone. 

Superintendent Carl Patrick, force lead for rural and wildlife affairs, said: “We have recently seen an increased number of thefts within the rural community, specifically quad bikes. This type of crime disrupts our communities and adversely affects the local economy.

“As well as reporting incidents such as a suspicious vehicles or persons it’s important that simple and basic steps are taken to protect your property such as ensuring outbuildings are locked and that tools and machinery are kept out of sight.

“Installing tracking devices to property is also a great security measure and can help significantly within an investigation to locate the property. Markings or data tags are also really helpful so we can identify who the items belong to if found.

“We have Police Community Support Officers specially trained to undertake crime prevention surveys in rural locations. Farmers should book a survey now via 101, or e-mailing 101@cumbria.police.uk.

“The officers will assess the farm and perhaps provide some free crime prevention tools such as property marking equipment kindly provided by the Cumbria Police and Crime Commissioner Peter McCall.”
