埃塞克斯郡的騎馬者被要求與警察一起當好眼睛和耳朵

騎馬者正在接受培訓,成為警察的 "眼睛和耳朵",以應對農村和遺產犯罪。

埃塞克斯警方說,警察 "繼續積極巡邏",但它正在與烏特爾斯福德區議會合作進行一項新的試驗,"以加強我們的努力"。

埃塞克斯騎馬者志願者將接受培訓,了解應該注意什麼並報告可疑活動。

"發言人說:"該計劃將看到經常使用車輛不易到達的馬道、人行道和狹窄的鄉村小道的騎馬志願者成為我們的眼睛和耳朵。

"該計劃背後的想法是,騎馬者處於一個獨特的位置,可以發現與犯罪有關的可疑活動的跡象,如野兔狩獵、被盜農用車、非法金屬探測或從受保護的文物建築中盜竊鉛。"

埃塞克斯警察局負責當地治安的領導和全國文物犯罪的領導Rachel Nolan助理局長說。"騎馬者真正了解他們的當地社區,並能很好地識別和報告可疑的行為,特別是在偏遠地區"。

來自執政的Uttlesford集團居民的議員Maggie Sutton說。"我們認識到農村犯罪如何影響農場、牲畜和野生動物,並以個人和農村企業為目標,以及對Uttlesford居民的持久影響。

"我們希望Uttlesford的任何騎馬者考慮加入我們這個計劃,並幫助成為我們農村社區的眼睛和耳朵,報告可疑的活動和犯罪。"

Horse riders are being trained to be the "eyes and ears" of police in a bid to tackle rural and heritage crime.

Essex Police said officers "continue to actively patrol", but it was working with Uttlesford District Council on a new trial "to bolster our efforts".

The Essex Horse Rider Volunteers will be trained in what to look out for and to report suspicious activity.

"The scheme will see volunteers on horseback, who regularly use bridleways, footpaths and narrow country lanes, that are not easily accessible by vehicles, becoming our eyes and ears," a spokesman said.

"The idea behind the scheme is that horse riders are in a unique position to spot signs of suspicious activity related to offences such as hare coursing, stolen agricultural vehicles, unlawful metal detecting or theft of lead from protected heritage buildings."

Assistant Chief Constable Rachel Nolan, Essex Police's lead for local policing and the national lead for heritage crime, said: "Horse riders really know their local communities and are brilliantly placed to identify and report suspicious behaviour, especially off the beaten track."

Maggie Sutton, councillor from the ruling Residents for Uttlesford group, said: "We recognise how rural crime affects farms, livestock and wildlife, and targets individuals and rural businesses and the lasting impact it has on Uttlesford residents.

"We are hoping for any horse riders in Uttlesford to consider joining us with this scheme and help to be the eyes and ears for our rural communities in reporting suspicious activity and crime."
