23 March 2017New text number to combat rural crime - 07492 888109
The service was aimed at encouraging rural communities and businesses to help us by providing information and intelligence about suspected crime in their area. The number allows the public to text information directly to the Rural Crime Team, who assess and action the intelligence quickly and efficiently.
The service is going to continue following its three month trial but the number is changing. The 81819 number, which was also shared with our Drink Drive campaign and other services, is being discontinued and new numbers are being rolled out. The new Rural Crime number is now 07492 888109 and will working in exactly the same way.
You can report a crime online via our website www.avonandsomerset.police.uk If it's a crime which requires an immediate police attendance then dial 999.

You can still pass on information via the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. They never ask your name or trace your call.
