With every year that passes the amount of theft and vandalism that occurs on UK farms seems to get worse and worse. In order to help farmers protect their farms and farm equipment we have put together a “Step by Step Guide to Farm security”. Alongside our handy checklists we hope that we can give you a structured approach to securing your farm.
With over 11 years of helping farmers all over the UK add security, we have included the experience we have gained personally as well as that we have gained by interfacing with farmers who have had thefts and the police who have responded to those crimes.
Our guide follows a structured process to help you understand the threats and then start to put defenses in place. The checklist then provides a handy method to work through the suggestions and apply the protective measures that are appropriate to YOUR circumstances.
The guide coves the following steps:
Step 1 – Understanding Farm Crime – in which we consider the types of criminal and the common items they target.
Step 2 – Connecting to the local community – connecting with other far
