The PSNI has provided a series of tips to help farmers secure their farm’s perimeter and keep their property safe.
- Restrict access to your yard – the fewer ways in the better – use gates or security posts, if practicable;
- The boundary to your farm should be in good condition with no holes/gaps/vulnerable areas;
- Do you have a gate at the entrance to your farm? Is it securely mounted and locked with heavy-duty chains and padlocks?
- Do you have farm watch/no trespass/ guard dog/ property alarm or property marked signs at the entrance to your farm?
