From machinery theft to fly-tipping, hare coursing to livestock rustling, farm businesses are no strangers to the ongoing battle against rural crime.
But advances in technology, such as GPS tracking, drones and night vision cameras are making it easier for farmers and land-owners to protect themselves, their assets and their workers.
Join us (online) to find out about the latest innovations designed to protect rural businesses, livestock, machinery and people. We’ll also be showcasing some farmer case-studies and hear how a machinery dealership is tackling the problem using state-of-the-art solutions.
In partnership with Norfolk County Council and AF Group, and featuring reflections from the Norfolk Police and Crime Commissioner, come and be part of the discussion to discover how technology can reduce your risk and improve your bottom line.
This event is open to all and free to attend.
