Special constables get quad bike power to tackle rural crime

Filed under: Quad Bikes News — Diane on August 3, 2012

A team of special constables in East Herts is to get a boost when it comes to patrolling its neighbourhoods – thanks to a meeting with local farmers. The specials will now be able to tackle crime in rural areas on a quad bike.

Local farmers held a meeting with police to find a way to patrol inaccessible parts of the land and the answer was to provide constables with an ATV.

Following the meeting, Honda was approached to see if it could help the situation by lending a quad bike to the rural team for a year.

Honda was only too happy to loan one of the popular quad bikes, along with accessories to the specials so they could combat rural crime in areas which had previously been hard to reach. A local quad bike retailer donated a trailer and agreed to service and maintain the ATV while it is on loan.

The Head of Honda Power Equipment, Phil Webb, said that the officers do a great job when it comes to tackling crime – despite having to deal with everything that is thrown at them. He went on to say that Honda was happy to support them.

The chairman of the policy authority replied by saying that it was very important that the police did everything in their power to respond to the needs of the local community. He said the quad bike would be a great example of effectively dealing with the needs of those living in rural communities.
