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.

Rachel Binns, Head of Digital Media at the Constabulary welcomed the launch and said: "We consider the use of social media as an important way to connect with the communities and people who are typically considered "hard to reach".

"We can build on confidence and satisfaction levels by interacting with the public in different ways and social media such as Facebook is one platform through which to do this.
