["Agricultural crime, including theft of farming-related commodities, supplies, and equipment, causes
billions of dollars of losses each year to farmers, insurers, and consumers. Drawing on analyses of law
enforcement, farm survey, site visit, and interview data, this study evaluated the theory and impacts of a promising initiative in California aimed at addressing this problem. ACTION collects and analyzes agricultural crime data; encourages and enables information-sharing among law enforcement agencies and prosecutors within and across counties; educates the public and farmers about agricultural crime and how to combat it; marks equipment with owner applied numbers; and promotes aggressive law enforcement and prosecution."]
