    Police report every incident on Twitter for a day

    Police report every incident on Twitter for a day

    Peter Fahy, Chief Constable of Greater Manchester Police (GMP), wants the public - and politicians, to see what his officers deal with on a daily basis.

    ''Policing is often seen in very simple terms, with cops chasing robbers and locking them up,'' he said.

    ''However, the reality is that this accounts for only part of the work they have to deal with.

    ''A lot of what we do is dealing with social problems such as missing children, people with mental health problems and domestic abuse. Often these incidents can be incredibly complex and need a lot of time, resource and expertise.


    From 5am today the details of every incident GMP deals are being published on the following three accounts on Twitter. They are: GMPolice (gmp24_1) on Twitter, GMPolice (gmp24_2) on Twitter and GMPolice (gmp24_3) on Twitter

    I think this is a great idea. We've done something similar here with our Police Ride-a-long tweets on the mainpage.

    Everyone would benefit with a brief idea of what's going on in the world. Of course, as long as critical details are left out.

    Hopefully it might highlight the rubbish that people call in about and actually how busy it is at times.
    "all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing" Edmund Burke.
    "the world is a dangerous place place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who do not do anything about it" Albert Einstein
