Rural White Paper

The Government places a high priority on tackling crime in rural areas and recognises the special demands in delivering a multi-agency crime reduction strategy to communities with low levels of population density

That is why thirty-one police forces in England and Wales benefited from an additional 15 Million allocated by the Home Office in Autumn 2000 to reflect the special needs of rural policing.

The Rural White Paper includes a section on rural crime and disorder in the chapter on tackling rural exclusion.

Related chapters include

  • Local power for country towns and villages

  • Protecting and enhancing our countryside

  • Restoring and maintaining wildlife diversity

  • Flexible rural transport

  • Market towns and a thriving local economy.

Details of the White Paper are available on the Dept of Employment Training and the Regions web site http://www.defra.gov.uk/wildlife-countryside/index.htm
