Safer Neighbourhood police teams in Clowne and Creswell are taking to Twitter

Residents in Creswell and Clowne can now keep up-to-date with police as their local Safer Neighbourhood teams take to Twitter.

Officers are using the social networking site to help them keep in touch with their local community online as well as out on the streets.

More than 50 Safer Neighbourhood policing teams across Derbyshire now have their own Twitter account, where they share details of daily patrols, operations they take part in and appeal for information about local crime.

In Creswell, PC Martyn Whyte, PCSO Matt Wardle and PCSO David Mitchell will be tweeting while on duty.

And PC Jason Graham, PCSO Suzanne Fox and PCSO Simon Galley have volunteered to tweet from the streets of Clowne.

Insp Frank Burns, who is in charge of policing in the Bolsover district, said: “I think Twitter is a great medium through which our local policing teams can keep their communities informed about their work.

“It also allows that additional tool by which officers can engage with the residents, especially those who might not want to attend a police surgery or meeting, but would still like to know what their local officers are doing.”

They follow in the footsteps of Bolsover Safer Neighbourhood Policing team, who were the first in the district to update a Twitter feed.
