People throughout the force area can receive frequent updates about policing in their community and Staffordshire as a whole through social networking sites Twitter, Facebook and YouTube.
Your Local Policing Team (LPT) sites are updated regularly with feeds from Staffordshire Police’s website and unique content.
As well as our main Facebook and Twitter sites, we are starting to expand the number of very local pages we have, allowing beat officers and PCSOs to provide relevant information to specific neighbourhoods or groups. We can then act on any feedback, making us more accessible and responsive.
Our ebay site was set up to help us sell the ill gotten gains of criminal activity. Some of the items seized from criminals, following their conviction in court, are listed for sale on the site. The money we get back goes into the continued fight against crime and can also help compensate victims.
The force’s social networking sites should not be used to report an emergency, details of a crime or any other urgent matter. They are not monitored 24-hours-a-day. Always dial 999 in an emergency.
