The Rusland Valley lies in the southern part of the Lake District National Park between Lake Coniston and Windermere. It is a quiet area of gentle rolling fells, moorland, woodland, fields and wetlands, with farms, hamlets and small villages.

Deer Poaching and Rural Crime
 
from Cumbria Police, Ulverston & Furness Policing team.


In response to concerns raised by the Forestry Commission, Parish Councils, local residents and farmers together with calls for service to poaching incidents, we are increasing uniformed patrols in the rural areas of Ulverston East.

As a rural County, issues reported regularly by the community are in relation to poaching of deer.  All wildlife crime can be difficult to prevent and investigate as it quite often takes place out of sight of the public but when intelligence and information is received there are a number of wildlife crime officers (WCO) based around the County who can investigate these incidents. Currently these officers carry out their wildlife investigations as a secondary role to their core responsibility which is policing of our neighbourhoods.

Incidents should be reported as you would any other incident, by calling Cumbria Police on 101 or in an emergency 999.  Alternatively if you would like to discuss an issue with a Wildlife Crime Officer, please use the non-emergency number or email: wildlifecrime@cumbria.police.uk.
