Agri SA has thrown its weight behind a new nationwide safety strategy aimed at fighting rural crime.

National Police Commissioner Bheki Cele unveiled the new plan on Friday and it sees officers being given equipment, vehicles and in some cases helicopters to address rural crime.

Earlier this year, Stellenbosch farmer Alberto Costa was murdered during an armed robbery at his home on Cloetesville.

Cele said livestock theft is high on their rural crime fighting agenda.
