Police are holding a free trailer marking event at Mart Yard, Derrynoid Road, Draperstown, on Thursday, April 13 from 11am–2pm.
Everyone is encouraged to come and have trailers and farming equipment marked as well as receive crime prevention advice and guidance from officers.
Tried and tested, criminals can be deterred by trailer and items are easier to recover when marked.
The proactive measure involves painting a unique ID mark on trailers and other farm equipment in an easily visible area with paint and stencils.
The owner’s details and ID mark are then held on a PSNI database which can then be checked if a trailer is seen in a location at a time that’s unusual. Contact Sheila CPO at Magherafelt PSNI on 101 ext. 40469 or 07795 607167.
