Dorset Police are looking to raise rural crime awareness with a campaign aimed at the public to report all rural thefts in their area, no matter how large or small. The flagship of this campaign is a striking version of Kioti’s RX7330 compact tractor, which has been transformed with flashing lights, a siren and all the decals of a conventional police vehicle.

Dorset Police ran a campaign to name the crime busting tractor and a vote by the local public chose the name RoboCrop. Those of you expecting to see the tractor chasing criminals across the countryside with siren on and lights blazing might be a little disappointed. However, RoboCrop will be displayed at shows and other events during the summer and autumn.
