Wiltshire Police

As part of the nationwide Operation Galileo, in which information is shared between forces across the country, Wiltshire Police's Rural Crime Team is to increase their patrols and work closely with the farming community and other partners to catch hare coursers.

Sergeant Fergusson said: “We have built close links with our rural communities which has helped us build intelligence around where hare coursers operate and sometimes who they are.
"Some criminals will travel hundreds of miles to be involved and are often associated with organised crime gangs.
