The Boston, England Police Tractor

You might be thinking “What the hell good is a police tractor?”. Obviously it won’t do much in a high-speed pursuit. Perhaps there are criminal crops, in need of reaping? No, according to Phil Vickers, the man behind this idea:

“The…purpose is to capture the public’s attention and deliver the message that we take rural crime very seriously.”

Wasting tens of thousands of dollars on a tractor to “capture attention” does seem to make it clear just how seriously you take rural crime.
