Crime Prevention Advice
Remove all GPS guidance receivers, aerials or antenna globes when not in use and keep them locked away in a secure locked place when possible.
Consider fitting security tethers or brackets to stop units being removed.
Marking these with UV pen, or engraving your postcode or forensic marking such as Datatag are all options to consider.
Store machinery inside locked barns if possible. Where locking machines away isn’t an option, consider fitting mains or battery- operated alarms to outbuildings or around the perimeter of areas where machines are stored.
CCTV and intruder alarms will deter most thieves, but make sure they are checked regularly to ensure they will work when you need them, and they are placed in a position where they won’t be triggered by animals or foliage moving in the wind.
Record machinery serial numbers and photographs for reference to help police identify stolen items and increase the chances of them being recovered.
Let employees know security arrangements that are expected of them while working on the farm.
Encourage farm staff to be vigilant and report any suspicious behaviour or vehicles to the police on 101, or 999 in an emergency
