Pentland Hills quad patrol: Force ride through rural landscapes across the east of Scotland on quad bikes to combat crime
As part of their rural crime initiative, Police Scotland patrolled The Pentland Hills and other areas across the east of Scotland on quads to tackle remote crime.
Over the weekend between March 13 and 14, police constables from Penicuik drove through The Pentland Hills Regional Park, Penicuik Estate and Roslin Glen Country Park to ensure these rural areas were kept safe from crime.
Riding along the rural landscapes on their quad bikes, the officers managed to speak with dog walkers, giving advice regarding livestock worrying as well as engaging with local farmers and landowners.
A Police Scotland spokesperson said: “Police Constables Dolan and Hand from Penicuik Community Policing Team carried out Quad Bike patrols at the following locations; The Pentland Hills Regional Park, Penicuik Estate and Roslin Glen Country Park.”
To combat rural crime, police are urging anyone with any information on this to contact police on 101 or on 999 in an emergency.
