A team of 70 farm specialist police will be stationed across Victoria, including the North East, in an effort to target rural crime.
The farm crime liaison officers will replace the previous police agricultural unit and look into issues such as livestock and equipment theft.
The new police unit will be announced on Monday by Police Minister Lisa Neville and will have the support of the Victorian Farmers Federation.
It was created after an internal review of Victoria's response to form crime.
"The unit will work directly with Victoria's farming and agricultural communities and monitor crime trends and patterns to better respond to farm crime," Ms Neville said.
"We take this type of offending very seriously - the theft of equipment or livestock can have a huge operational impact on our farmers, on top of the financial burden.
"We've listened to the increased concerns in rural communities and we've acted."
She said the specialist police will work with officers at station, monitor crime trends and patterns, develop intelligence and provide operational advice to Victoria Police command.
The latest crime statistics show that in the year to 30 March 2019, almost 3600 farm-related thefts were recorded with power tools, tools, livestock, and electrical appliances among the top items stolen.
The new approach from Victoria comes as NSW Police has launched a six-week crime blitz on rural crime.
Announced at the Henty Fields Days, police want people to report and help stamp out the rising numbers of livestock and firearm theft, as well as illegal hunting and trespassing.
