Tees Valley Rural Community Council (TVRCC) is a registered charity.
It which helps and encourages rural communities to identify issues which need to be tackled and supports communities in addressing them.
The TVRCC work closely with Cleveland Police and is a supporter of the Tees Rural Crime Forum and Rural Watch.
TVRCC has requested funding to purchase 50 metal rural watch signs to place in communities to promote the work that TVRCC and Cleveland Police are doing to tackle rural crime, recruit members for Rural Watch and to prevent crimes occurring.
Evidence shows that the presence of similar signs has deterred individuals from offending and committing crimes.
The signs will include logos from Cleveland Police, TVRCC and the PCC. This support the PCCs objectives of Investing in our Police and Working Together to Make Cleveland Safer.
