Kinross-shire Rural Watch

Scheme information

This Rural Watch encompasses farms, rural businesses and domestic properties within the Kinross-shire multi member ward Policing area. The Scheme is being coordinated by Police Scotland, Perth & Kinross local Policing area and is currently being rolled out. It is anticipated that an official launch of the Watch will take place in August 2013. The purpose of the scheme is to improve communication between members and the Police. Police Scotland Kinross will carry out patrols to reassure the community and reduce crime in the area. The email system within the watch will be used to pass information to watch members, such emails will include information on crime in the area of the watch. This will allow members to take necessary precautions to prevent further crimes. likewise members can contact the Coordinator by email at the touch of a button. Weatherproof signage will be erected at strategic points throughout the Watch to allow visitors to be aware that although a rural area, it is managed, inhabited, Policed and cared for.
