“We would also encourage residents and people working in rural East Devon areas to join our successful Farm Watch scheme, which will alert them to crime and suspicious activity via phone, email or fax, and creates a network of like-minded people who we can share information with and who can act as extra pairs of eyes and ears in the community.
