Tell us your views and experiences

Rural policing is an important issue in the countryside and we are interested in gaining your views on rural policing and crime. Tell us about any crimes that have been committed against you, including ones that were not reported to the Police. How did being a victim of crime make you feel? Did the Police respond appropriately?

We are seeking the views of those who live, work or regularly visit rural areas in England, Scotland and Wales, with a view to highlighting the true level of rural crime. We will use the results to let your Police and Crime Commissioner know the issues that matter to you and will present our findings to the Government so that they understand rural crime better. 

This survey should only take 10 minutes, and your responses are anonymous. The survey will close on Sunday 5 November 2023.
