Residents in Bakewell and the surrounding area can be kept in the loop with policing issues in their community by following local officers on Twitter.
PC Ian Hyde and PCSO Hayley Grundy from the Bakewell Safer Neighbourhood Team are the latest officers to take to the social media site and will be keeping residents updated as they tweet on the beat.
PC Hyde from the policing team said: “Twitter is a great way for us to keep local residents in the know about neighbourhood issues and the ways that we are working to address these.
“We will be tweeting to keep the community updated with any serious incidents, witness appeals or road closures to help us to spread the police message even further.
“Twitter provides an additional platform for us to chat to residents and also gives them the opportunity to ask us any questions directly over the site.”
Police will be tweeting about crime prevention advice, police initiatives and any dates for the diary, such as governance meetings to help set policing priorities.
To follow the policing team on Twitter, visit the social networking site, search for @BakewellSNT and click ‘follow’.
The Bakewell Safer Neighbourhood Team and all other SNT Twitter profiles will appeal for information on crimes through Twitter but you should always report crimes by calling 101 or 999 in an emergency.
For more information or to speak to the team call 101, the non-emergency number for Derbyshire police.
