Police tractor launched to combat rural crime

A rural police force has revealed their latest vehicle in the fight against crime… a five ton 25mph tractor.

Lincolnshire Police say the £50,000 John Deere 6630 tractor will help them by raising awareness or rural crime when it appears at farmer's markets in the county.

It will be used to promote the use of SmartWater and schemes which encourage people who live and work in the countryside to be vigilant and report crime.

It's not known if the normal siren on the temporary loan tractor has been replaced by one which goes: "Oh Arr, Oh Arr, Oh Arr."
"The tractor looks like a bit of fun but its purpose is to capture the public’s attention and deliver the message that we take rural crime very seriously" said Chief Inspector Vickers.
