A message from Avon and Somerset Police
New text number to combat rural crime – 81819
This new number will allow the public to text information directly to the Rural Crime Team.
They want to hear from anyone who has information about any suspicious or potentially criminal activity in their area, such as details of people/vehicles seen behaving suspiciously, potentially stolen goods or livestock being offered for sale, stolen vehicles we might put out an alert for and so on.
The number won’t be monitored 24/7 but the team will be looking at it when they are on duty. It therefore shouldn’t be used for reporting crimes or anything which requires an immediate police attendance. In those circumstances please dial 999.
The new number is 81819, please text any information you believe could either help prevent or detect a crime in your area.
