Rural Crime Prevention Workshops

Federated Farmers are proud to offer Rural Crime Prevention workshops in conjunction with FMG and the New Zealand Police.

Did you know that on average, there are approximately 54,000 reported burglaries in NZ every year? That’s one every 10 minutes and many more go unreported!

If you’re concerned about the security of your property, please come along to your local workshop to gain insights from Rick and the team.

Our workshops include:
  • Security best practices – catered for the farming community.
  • The opportunity to share your stories and hear other local’s experiences.
  • Advice from the New Zealand Police, Executive Chairperson for Federated Farmers Meat & Fibre Industry Group, Rick Powdrell, and FMG Insurance.
  • Networking in your area to build a stronger community to tackle rural crime.
Snacks and refreshments are provided, along with a handy Rural Crime Prevention Advice Guide, including home security checklist and key notes from the workshop.
