Hastings Police join Twitter site

RESIDENTS will now be able to keep up with what Hastings Police are up to through the Twitter website.

The force signed up this week and will be uploading short messages keeping the public informed about new incidents and existing investigations. There are three officers using the @Hastings_Police account, and they already have more than 100 followers on the site.

PC Duncan Cleverley said: “Hastings Police are now embracing Twitter and looking forward to engaging with people through social media as we are always looking for new ways to keep in touch with the public.

“Please follow us and get updates on what officers are doing, where we are through the day and any other news we have. We are unable to take any reports of crime via tweets though - these should be reported on 0845 6070999 or 999 in an emergency.”
