Farms and rural businesses are just as susceptible to crime as businesses located in busy city locations. Due the their often remote and quiet locations, farms are targeted by thieves who steal livestock, agricultural vehicles such as quad bikes. Falling victim to theft is obviously extremely stressful from a financial point of view, but for farming families living in remote locations, the emotional impact can be huge.
Whilst there are lots of practical things that farmers can do to reduce the risk of having equipment stolen, such as storing vehicle keys out of sight and in secure locations, and reporting any suspicious vehicles in the area to police, installing additional security measures can provide much needed peace of mind.
CCTV is becoming increasingly popular with farmers and businesses in rural locations. Offering an effective way to monitor livestock, out buildings and barns etc, CCTV cameras will also deter thieves from attempting to enter a property.
