Policing rural communities presents a unique challenge. Lancashire Constabulary is responsible for policing an area of almost 2000 square miles, 74% of which is classed as rural.
We recognise that whilst our rural communities represent just 9% of the population of Lancashire, these communities have diverse and unique needs and it is really important that we deliver a high quality, tailored service.
In order to reduce crime in these areas, people need to make sure their premises and property are as uninviting as possible for criminals. We will look to identify vulnerable premises and people and offer relevant support and advice to residents and businesses. If you want to speak to someone about rural policing in your area you can email us.
Some of our PDF and Word documents are essential to sharing information. Over the coming months, we are reviewing all our web pages and making the necessary changes to ensure that they are accessible for all.
The accessibility regulations do not require us to fix PDFs or other documents published before 23 September 2018 if they are not essential to the organisation.
However, we recognise that there are several PDF and Word documents that are essential to our organisation and that we have a duty to publish these in a format accessible to all. Alterative formats of all documents on our website are available upon request. You can make a request by emailing our Media and Engagement Department:
Please make sure you include in your message the following:
- The name of the document you require in an alternative format
- The format you require the document in
- Your name
