PEOPLE living in Buxton can keep up-to-date with their local Safer Neighbourhood Team after Police Community Support Officer (PCSO) Allyson Ratcliffe took over the Twitter profile @BuxtonTownSNT.
Officers use Twitter to share details of patrols, operations they take part in and offer crime prevention advice. They also make appeals for information about crime.
PCSO Ratcliffe said: “We’re still out on the streets, holding surgeries and forums and meeting community groups and the public face-to-face.
“But people get their information in different ways these days and Twitter is a very popular one, which is why I was keen to get to grips with it.
“I’m new to tweeting but with a little practice I’ll get there, and keep the people of Buxton in the loop about what we’re up to.”
