New Rural Crime Prevention teams for the state's rural areas have been announced by the NSW Police Force.


To be overseen by the state Rural Crime Coordinator, the teams will work across northern, southern and central NSW and are designed for greater focus on proactivity and prevention.


Commissioner Mick Fuller added that the new model would renew focus on community engagement and prevention of crime.


Deputy commissioner Gary Worboys says improvements are continually being made so that police can target and respond to stock theft, trespass and illegal hunting.


He says more specially trained rural crime officers will be clustered in regional centres to target and prevent crime and respond quickly when it occurs.
