Aberystwyth University launches new rural crime study

Researchers at Aberystwyth University are asking farmers for their views on how rural crime is being tackled in the Dyfed-Powys Police area.

Dr Wyn Morris from the Aberystwyth Business School and Dr Gareth Norris from the University’s Department of Psychology want farmers and other key stakeholders to share their experiences of farm-related crime, police attitudes towards farm crime and the effectiveness of crime-prevention measures in rural areas.

Funded by the office of the Dyfed-Powys Police and Crime Commissioner, the study is being launched during the Royal Welsh Show 22-25 July 2019.

The new research project will build on the Rural Crime Survey carried out by the University in 2017 and used to inform Dyfed-Powys Police’s Rural Crime Strategy for 2017-2021.

Responses and comments will be collated using an online questionnaire which will be available until 30 September 2019: aber.onlinesurveys.ac.uk/rural-crime-study-2.
