Working together to tackle Rural Crime
Rural Crime cost the UK over £43m in 2020 so a new campaign has been launched by CrimeStoppers to explain what it is and what you can do to help.
The campaign recognises that ‘rural crime is repetitive and organised, but without information it can’t be tackled’ so is calling on people to speak up to stop this criminal activity.
The good news is you can report information anonymously through CrimeStoppers
Follow the Countryside Code
When visiting parks and waterways, coast and countryside, please follow the new Countryside Code.
Intended for locals and visitors, the Clean Devon Partnership welcomes the new code which encourages us to Respect everyone, Protect the countryside and Enjoy the outdoors.
In 2020, we had a glimpse how bad things could get with many popular destinations overwhelmed with litter. With 80% of ocean plastic carried from land by rivers, streams and drains, we can all play a part in avoiding this in the future.
Follow the Countryside Code.
Here’s how to help
Devon is beautiful – let’s keep it that way – find a bin or take your litter home
- Follow the Countryside Code: Protect, Respect, Enjoy
- While you are out enjoying Devon whether at the beach, in the countryside or in our amazing towns and villages, if you see litter why not join with your friends/family to do a 2 minute litter pick?
- Spread the word by sharing posts from our partners under #Clean Devon
