Poaching is a seasonal trend, which occurs after harvest and lasts well into the New Year. It is often linked with other offences such as metal theft, and damage.
Action: To link in with current groups such as farm watch, farm watch, and church watch and conduct high visibility patrols in vulnerable areas.
Results : Over the last few months operations have been taking place to tackle poaching. We have seen some fantastic results over the winter months, with many offenders reported under the game act, vehicles seized, along with dispersal orders issued to leave the policing area.
