What is Being Done about Rural Crime - What RCIU Offers Missouri:
RCIU supports a tip line of 888-484-TIPS that allows citizens to report rural crime information anonymously.
RCIU investigators are all trained and seasoned state troopers with experience in conducting interviews of subjects and victims, gaining "street intelligence," conducting surveillance, collecting evidence, performing case research, and preparing documents to satisfy judicial prosecution requirements.
RCIU staff actively investigates rural crime cases alongside rural law enforcement agencies that have reported the crime and have requested assistance.
RCIU analyst is available to provide investigative assistance to MO law enforcement agencies that are investigating rural crime regardless of whether the agency is actively working in conjunction with RCIU on the case.
RCIU Livestock Theft Alerts are disseminated regionally to law enforcement, MO state sale barns, and the public in an effort to recover stolen livestock.
RCIU Equipment Theft Alerts are disseminated to law enforcement statewide and often to the public and farm implements in an effort to recover stolen heavy equipment.
RCIU hosts regional rural crime seminars to educate law enforcement, business owners, and farmers regarding the intricacies of rural crime.
