Residents in parts of Derbyshire can now follow their local officers on Twitter as 30 Safer Neighbourhood team accounts are active.
In August 2012, a mixture of police constables and PCSOs from Safer Neighbourhood Teams across the county took to Twitter to update the community they serve with important and useful information.
Since then, further officers have joined up, and now almost a third of the force's SNTs are represented on the social media site.
Officers will keep local residents informed of their whereabouts, update the community with news, safety advice and preventative measures, promote police surgeries and events, re-Tweet any useful information from relevant and local sources and generally use the medium of Twitter to engage with the public they serve.
Derbyshire police launched its own Twitter site in the summer of 2009 and uses it to share news, appeals and information with followers. To date, the force has almost 19,500 followers, but this is the first time neighbourhood officers in the county have held accounts.
