The National Rural Crime Network (Network) is a membership group made up of Police and Crime Commissioners from across the political spectrum, and organisations interested in rural community safety and affairs, such as Crime stoppers, Countryside Alliance, NFU, NFU Mutual and Historic England (to name some).

Collectively members have the ability to reach and engage with thousands of people living, working and enjoying rural England and Wales.
