Not all crimes are committed by people living or working in the same area. Some are committed by individuals and groups who travel across policing boundaries exploiting rural communities and carrying out a range of acquisitive crimes including the theft of agricultural machinery and livestock.

Complementing our Local Policing+ inspection of Dumfries and Galloway Division, we will assess the state, effectiveness and efficiency of the management of cross-boundary crime.
