According to the California Farm Bureau Rural Crime Prevention Task Force, implementing these procedures on your farm or ranch will help prevent rural crime.

  • Make sure there is proper lighting around storage areas and buildings.
  • Keep a record of who has keys to your locks.
  • Order only the supplies you need or will use up right away.
  • Provide employees with a communication system so they can quickly report suspicious activity.
  • Lock and remove keys from all company vehicles when they are not in use.
  • Always know who is on your property.
  • Talk to neighbors about suspicious people and vehicles.
  • Block the entrances and private roads that lead into fields. Make access to your property as difficult as possible to outsiders.
  • Keep an accurate and up-to-date inventory of all equipment and major supplies so you know what you should have and what may be missing.
  • Check your property routinely for damage, vandalism and theft.
  • Report any criminal or suspicious activity immediately.
  • Do not give lock combinations or keys to anyone who is not involved with your operation.
  • Ask all delivery personnel not to leave packages or supplies without first contacting a designated employee.
