Police in the Aylesbury Vale are hosting a 17-hour blitz on social media with a Tweetathon aimed at highlighting their work.

From 7am until midnight on February 6 the Aylesbury Vale policing team will be tweeting about their job in tackling crime.

The aim of the Tweetathon is to give an insight and raise awareness of the different types of incidents, responses and community activities that officers are involved with throughout the day in the Aylesbury Vale patch.

They will be tweeting updates and photographs throughout the day.

Inspector James Davies said: “The Tweetathon is a great opportunity to highlight the range of policing activities and work undertaken by officers on a day to day basis.

“We aim to inform the local community about the work and share some important crime prevention advice to help prevent the public from becoming a victim of crime.

“Social media is a great way for the police to actively engage with the communities we serve and this Tweetathon provides a two-way online communication, allowing the local community to get involved and raise any concerns they may have with the local policing team.

“The Tweetathon will, hopefully, give the local community a better understanding of policing and the work undertaken by officers to reduce crime and keep the community safe, across the 350 square miles of the Aylesbury Vale. We hope our followers will find it interesting and informative.

“The public can get involved by re-tweeting our tweets or using the hash tag #TVPinaday, follow us and get involved @TVP_Aylesbury.
