Rural Crime Operation

Chester Le Street Neighbourhood team have been involved in a rural crime operation with the aim of addressing concerns raised to us by people who live and work in our rural communities.  Alongside the main concern of poaching we have been looking at the use of 4x4 vehicles and off road bikes that have been destroying land and crops along with fly tipping that is becoming a major issue across our area.  We also have problems with ASB with people setting fires and leaving rubbish behind.  

All the above are unacceptable in any of our communities, but with people in rural areas feeling more isolated, it is important to give the re-assurance that they are not left alone and that your local policing team are actively working to tackle the issues that you raised to us.

PCSO Mark Lumsden is the point of contact for any issues relating to our rural communities and can be contacted via E-Mail at mark.lumsden@durham.police.uk, please get in touch if you have anything you would like to discuss.
