Farmers wanted to take part in national farm crime survey

Are you a farmer in the Hills region?

The University of New England Centre for Rural Criminology (UNE) are running an Australian Farm Crime Survey and would like to hear from farmers across Australia so they can better understand crime across the Country and develop effective solutions.

This is the first attempt in more than 20 years to build an understanding of rural crime on a national scale. The survey seeks to gain a better understanding of the climbing rate of rural crime from the perspective of farmers and landholders.

The Centre’s 2023 Australian Farm Crime Survey asks landholders to detail their experiences of rural crime and gather opinions about the effectiveness of crime prevention.

The information will be used to build an understanding of landholder attitudes towards current policing and justice system responses to rural crime, which may eventually inform future crime prevention measures.
