Farm boundaries: Rural crime prevention advice

Share by emailShare by email

Reduce the risk in six steps:

  1. Remove all gates and entrances that you no longer use. If possible establish a single entrance and exit.
  2. Invert and cap gate hinges so gates cannot be lifted off, use good padlocks with covers that cannot be cut off and ensure fixing bolts cannot be removed.
  3. Plant thorn hedges as natural boundaries.
  4. Dig ditches to restrict vehicle access.
  5. Consider using an entry control system- infra-red, intercom or key pad entry.
  6. Cattle grids should be removed and locked out of position when not in use.
