Rural Crime Prevention Program
Farm Alert Program
Program Purpose: To take an increased role in the prevention of Agriculture crimes in Dyer County by encouraging producers to participate with Law Enforcement in an Agriculture Crime Prevention Program utilizing the latest Technology, Information Sharing and Best Practice Operations.
Crime in rural and agriculture communities is estimated at 5 billion dollars in losses annually. Agriculture crimes include theft of livestock, equipment, wire, seed, fertilizer and pesticides. Additionally vandalism and other form of property crimes contribute to loss. Costs of crimes are absorbed by farmers in the form of loss of profit, increased insurance premiums, and higher costs of doing business. Despite the magnitude of crime in this sector, agriculture crime has received little attention from criminologists and policymakers.
