Rural crime costs millions of dollars every year. Theft of livestock, produce and equipment, illegal shooting, trespassing and other crimes affect people's livelihood and well-being.
NSW Police Force needs the community's help to identify people involved in rural crime. With a state-wide network of experienced and dedicated Rural Crime Investigators, we can work with rural communities to prevent and solve these crimes.
You can also report knowledge of rural crime to Crime Stoppers - 1800 333 000.
The Stock Theft Template is a guide victims of stock theft can use when reporting an incident to Police. This template is also a reference guide for all primary producers regarding the type of information Police may require when investigating stock theft.
Fuel theft is a significant issue for NSW rural communities. To assist rural land owners to monitor fuel purchases and usage, a Fuel Storage Template has been developed and available to print for your convenience. If you believe you have been a victim of fuel theft, please contact your local Rural Crime Investigator.
Trespassing on rural properties will not be tolerated. You must have permission to enter a private property.
If you enter a working farm without permission you could be introducing disease and pests which may have a significant impact on the livestock, crops and the industry.
