Randall not Hopkirk

The latest Newsletter from Operation Randall has been published. Operation Randall is a programme by Norfolk Police focusing on rural crime prevention. It was originally set up to help prevent and report rural crime especially as it affects the farming community. It now covers rural crime in general which is an important issue for a large rural county such as Norfolk.

When launching the Rural Policing Strategy document for the period 2016-2020, Norfolk Police and Crime Commissioner Lorne Green (wasn’t he in Bonanza?) said “…there are some types of crime which are more prevalent in rural areas and bring unique challenges for policing…” Operation Randall is one approach to tackling the problems facing the police in rural areas of Norfolk.

The May edition of the Operation Randall Newsletter contains articles on Covid-19, fly-tipping and scams. If you want to read further you can download the latest copy by following this link. The Rural Policing Strategy document can be downloaded here.


Note: the editorial team are showing their age in this article with references to TV shows of the 60s and 70s. Randall and Hopkirk (deceased) was a spoof detective series and Bonanza was a popular TV Western.
