This week marks the second annual NSW Rural Crime Week.
Law enforcement is working to establish rural crime prevention teams for regional NSW communities.
The announcement comes just days after the Liberals & Nationals introduced a Bill to strengthen legislation surrounding stock theft, trespass and illegal hunting.
As a part of the week, officers will be running campaign for raised awareness of rural crime; with each day focusing on new aspects such as illegal hunting, firearms theft, livestock theft and crime prevention.
The establishment of the teams are being carried out as a part of the NSW Police Force Response to the Bradshaw review.
Officers across the state will be working to raise awareness and facilitate community engagement as the week continues.
Assistant Commissioner and Corporate Spokesperson for Rural Crime Geoff McKechnie says when it comes to rural crime, public feedback is critical.
