Cops on the Tweet in Amber Valley

Officers from two more Safer Neighbourhood policing teams (SNTs) in the Amber Valley have taken to Twitter to help keep their communities in the know.

PCSO Richard Plant is now tweeting from the streets of Somercotes and Swanwick, along with PC Neil Hopwell and PCSO John Midgley, who are also running an account for residents in the Kilburn area.

Officers use Twitter to share details of daily patrols, operations they take part in and offer crime prevention advice.

They will also make appeals for information about local crime.
