FARMING communities in Powys are benefitting from additional support from police, as officers crackdown on rural crime.

Dyfed-Powys Police Rural Crime Team and Neighbourhood Policing officers are visiting homes and farms across the division, offering crime prevention advice and practical measures to reduce the risk of becoming repeat victims of crime.

The work is being carried out in partnership with the Powys Crime Prevention Team and the Powys Community Safety Partnership and is thanks to funding received from Police and Crime Commissioner Dafydd Llywelyn.
