Police force joins Greater Lincolnshire Nature Partnership

The GLNP gained a member at the Lincolnshire Show this year taking the total to 43 Partners. The Lincolnshire Police signed up to the Nature Partnership via PC Nick Willey the Wildlife Crime Officer. Preventing and prosecuting wildlife crime is an essential part of achieving more for nature and one that must not be forgotten.

A key part of Lincolnshire Police's strategy in this area is Operation Galileo, over the autumn and winter of 2012 this coordinated programme has brought down the illegal hare coursing activities reported to the police and resulted in 186 prosecutions. The continuation of Operation Galileo in 2013 seeks to achieve more.
