Welcoming the social media world

The States of Jersey Police have entered the digital age with the official launch of its own social networking sites.

The force is using Twitter and Facebook to provide more information to the public about what's going on in the island and what officers are up to.

A vimeo channel has also been launched which gives viewers a chance to look at some of the many facets of the force.

The sites will carry incident appeals, crime prevention advice and updates on any road closures, as well as giving islanders an insight into some of the behind-the-scenes areas of the force.

Already the site has given people details about accidents which have led to congestion on the island's roads, historical pictures as 2012 is States of Jersey Police's 60th anniversary and an insight into life as a police dog.

Inspector Leo Sheridan said: "The use of social media is another way for the States of Jersey Police to communicate with the public and it is great for us to be able to reach different audiences. Young people often do not use traditional news sites and this is a particularly good method of engaging with them.

"This is also a chance for people to communicate with us whether on our ˜wall', or by private message, however we would like to remind people that this is not the place to report an emergency.
