Speaking on behalf of SPARC, Inspector Alan Dron, Police Scotland National Rural Crime Co-ordinator said: “We are delighted Glasgow City Council has provided this opportunity to highlight its work within the heart of the city.

Regardless of geographical location, across Scotland our partners and police work extremely hard to make a real difference to communities and today is about raising awareness of rural crime and the steps being taken to reduce it.

“Rural crime can impact on us all and it should be remembered incidents relating to for example high value theft of plant equipment or fly tipping are just as relevant to urban areas as they are to the rural. By bringing some of the work SPARC does into the centre of Glasgow, hopefully SPARC can help those who enjoy the rural environments to do so responsibly and contribute in whatever way to what we are trying to achieve.

“SPARC, with the combined effort of all 16 partners, is making great traction in this fight against rural crime and we have some exciting announcements and events coming up to help us see more results for the rural community in Scotland.”

The SPARC tractor is travelling the country spreading the message about tackling rural crime. Next stops are the Angus show on 8th June, Royal Highland Show from 20th June and the Haddington Show on 29th June, but its travels will continue throughout the summer.
