Shutting the gate on rural crime.
As New Zealand’s leading rural insurer FMG is committed to creating safer communities; that’s why we’ve partnered with Crimestoppers to ‘Shut the gate on rural crime’.
The campaign will encourage people to anonymously report suspicious activity to Crimestoppers if they are uncomfortable reporting it directly to the Police, and will be supported by the delivery of ‘It’s your call’ stickers to rural households. The completely confidential service gives people the opportunity to positively improve their community without having to fear possible consequences.
Conrad Wilkshire, General Manager of Advice & Insurance for FMG, describes the initiative as, “…another tool to help protect rural communities from the financials loss, disruption and invasion of privacy that crime causes”.
