Jesus. There was a thread earlier where Dilli said something like 'the only wanker here is you' and now this. The pair of you have no self awareness.

Just being aware of you is enough...

They (Derek F) included insist on calling themselves "Cops" must be an in joke for the Bastard Squad as nobody other than police or ex police actually use the word "cops"......

I speak as a taxpayer - I have no connection whatever to the Police.

For decades, we taxpayers have complained about both the cost of the Police and the fact that they seem to be getting ever more remote from the Public. Lack of foot patrols, lack of engagement, lack of 'Presence' are common complaints.

'Policing can only ever be effective with the support of the public' has been a common mantra.

If the Police wish to reverse that process, by re-engaging (via whatever media) with the public in seeking support to root out these knobs, who are nothing more than leeches on society, then I for one will applaud such initiatives, and if we return to a society that rejects the idiots who threaten innocent women, contribute nothing, but cost us taxpayers mega-bucks, then I'm all for supporting any initiatives to deny them cover.

The IOMC first went on social media in 2010. One of the few things I got right!

No, it’s perhaps because the police social media presence now is rubbush.

More likely the self adulation of members of the local constabulary past and present engineer the disrespect of the public.   There should be no interaction just public advice or requests.

police are only effective when they have the respect of the public

It's mostly alright, police using fb/twitter. Useful when we have a proper storm and at TT for road closures. It clearly has a purpose. But there have been posts that invite ridicule, some of which have since been taken down. I assume they're posted by the dickhead copper who loves himself.

It was pretty good, then it got a bit ruined. They ditched @iompolice with 20k following for @tweetbeatiom, with abith 14k followers. Odd tactics, but it does suffer from not having some proper, consistent overview. 

 

Times change, and doubtless it will be different again in 5 yrs time

There are some utterly brilliant interactive police SM accounts. Some of the Chief constables run really impressive Twitter profiles, and let their officers have a full voice.

If you say so

but then, that is only from your perspective.

hard for you to accept but most of us are not that easily impressed.
