Horse riders needed to become 'Rural Rangers' in Grantham area
Lincolnshire Police is calling on horse riders to sign up to its 'Rural Rangers' scheme.
The scheme is part of the force's Lincolnshire Horse Watch initiatives and will see riders recruited to keep a watchful eye in their communities.
The county's police and crime commissioner Marc Jones is backing the scheme. He said: “A crucial element of my work is to encourage partners to work together to help keep our residents safe.
"This scheme is an excellent way to give people an opportunity, and the necessary training and tools, to safeguard their own communities. They will be extra eyes and ears and will be able to look out for everything from fly tipping to suspicious behaviours.
"I am delighted to be able to support the scheme and am confident this is a very worthwhile investment."
Riders are asked to to be on the lookout for criminal activity and anti-social behaviour while on their usual rides out, and provide the police and relevant agencies with regular updates.
Participants must be over 18 years of age, a competent rider and riding in accordance with the Highway Code. They must also ride their own horses at their own expense and have insurance to do so, and live or ride in Lincolnshire.
