Agricultural Crime Prosecution Policy

Prosecution policy for agricultural crime has been updated to better recognise the financial and emotional impact of such crime on individuals and rural businesses. The policy reinforces the Crown Office approach to crimes such as the theft of farm vehicles, machinery, equipment, fuel and livestock; vandalism and fire-raising committed against farm property; and the worrying of livestock.

Scottish Land & Estates contributed to the formation of the policy, feeding in views of our members.  The policy involves a specialist approach delivered through training of all prosectuors and cases dealt with by identified specialists at the initial decision making stage and the Solicitor General pledges to use Proceeds of Crime powers on offenders wherever possible.  A link to the policy can be found here...
