NFU Cymru and North Wales Police have teamed up to help make local farms and the farming communities safer in rural south Gwynedd.
Utilising “OWL” - an On-line Watch Link, NFU Cymru and the local Police hope to create a network of local farms in the community to help prevent and detect crime and provide instant support and information about what is going on in the immediate area.
Local PCSO Leanne Rowlands at Porthmadog Police station said, “It’s all about local farmers communicating with each other and with the Police at the time they have concerns and for the timely sharing of any suspicious activity or individuals in their area. It has proved a great success in other areas and I have no doubt if we can get the community involved it will be a success here too.”
The scheme, which is free to join, is dependant on members having on-line access and signing up to receive and pass on relevant information.
If you require any further information about Farm Watch you can contact PCSO Rowlands at Porthmadog or PCSO Aron Humphreys at Pwllheli Police Station as below or by phoning 101.
