Police Scotland

NFU Mutual has provided Police Scotland with a 4x4 vehicle as part of its support for the Scottish Partnership Against Rural Crime (SPARC).

The Toyota Hilux 4x4 will be used by Police Scotland officers to crack down on rural theft, poaching and heritage crime.

While Covid restrictions have kept some criminals out of the countryside, thieves are now returning and turning their attention to high-value farm GPS systems.

Meanwhile, quad bikes and all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) remain high on thieves’ shopping lists because of their high value and portability.
