Kilburn bobbies take to Twitter to prevent crime

Twitter is being used to alert residents in the Kilburn, Holbrook and Parks Estate areas of local crime issues.

PC Neil Hopwell and PCSO John Midgley of Kilburn Safer Neighbourhood Team are using the internet site to share details of daily patrols, operations they take part in and offer crime prevention advice.

PCSO Midgley said: “While it gives us the chance to directly send out timely messages about any issues in the area and advice, we can also use Twitter to respond to queries that come through, giving us an extra way in which we can engage with our community.”
