Argyll & West Dunbartonshire Rural Crime Partnership

The Argyll and West Dunbartonshire Rural Crime Partnership attended the Cattle Sale at Oban Livestock Market on Tuesday 6 December. Police Scotland and  Scottish Fire & Rescue Service were joined by NFUS and Scottish Land & Estates staff to provide information and support to farmers from across the Highlands & Islands. The busy mart was the perfect venue to bring attention to a number of key areas of concern for the emergency services and representative bodies. Theft of farm and agricultural plant and vehicles. Fly Tipping, theft of fuel oil, rustling of stock, were among the highlighted issues. Fire and Rescue staff were on hand to offer advice on reducing the risk of fire on farms. Lucy Sumsion of NFUS said ‘its important to keep farmers, estates and other rural businesses informed about safety and security on and around their property’ Drew McFarlane-Slack of SLE agreed, adding ‘we have a very productive partnership with West Dunbartonshire and Argyll and our recent rural Crime Demo Day at Luss Estates was very well attended by members from across the West Coast. Estates must constantly consider the risks they face and take actions to reduce the risk of crime and fire losses.’
