Inspector Stuart Hutchings, of the Thames Valley Police’s Rural Crime Taskforce, said: "It’s vital for police to have a close relationship with the communities we serve and hopefully this annual event supports their efforts and that of the wider farming community.

"Tackling rural crime is all of our responsibility and by working closer together, we can create a hostile environment for offenders.

"Tackling all types of rural crime is a priority for Thames Valley Police.”

Matthew Barber, the Police and Crime Commissioner for Thames Valley, said: "Events such as the Rural Crime Farming Conference provide both myself and Thames Valley Police the opportunity to hear first-hand about the issues currently facing rural communities.

“The Rural Crime Taskforce continues to see positive results in tackling rural crime across the Thames Valley.

"Rural crime remains a key priority in my policing strategy and, by working together, we can ensure that rural communities are kept safe."
