Sergeant Reynolds, stationed at Mintlaw said: “I am delighted to again be able to deploy the Mobile Police Office to our smaller communities in response to requests made by the public who live in the area.

“Deploying the office in the smaller villages gives members of those communities the opportunity to come and discuss any issues they may have with an officer,” he added.
