PEOPLE who live, work and socialise in Norfolk now have their very own dedicated police Facebook site - allowing them to engage with police at the click of a button.
Taking advantage of the technology available on this social networking site, the constabulary is able to post a wide range of information which will help in the fight against crime.
Items on the site include CCTV images of offenders, local neighbourhood campaigns, information on crime maps and employment and various community press releases.
They also plan to launch a Twitter account soon.
