Criminals will always see rural areas as lucrative targets due to remoteness and a prolonged law enforcement response. Surveillance and observation is one half of a good defense. If criminals know that they will be seen, the less likely they will be willing to commit their crime. The other half is reporting crimes when they occur. We know that we should not expect an immediate response for non-violent crimes, but this does not mean that our Sheriff's Department won't investigate property crimes, especially if they identify a trend. The best source of information to identify trends is via CRIMECHECK.
