Stoobalou writes “One of the largest police forces in the UK is posting every incident reported to it today on Twitter. Greater Manchester Police began its 24-hour experiment this morning at 05:00 BST, tweeting all incident reports in the hope of highlighting the complexity of modern policing. ‘Policing is often seen in very simple terms, with cops chasing robbers and locking them up,’ Chief Constable Peter Fahy said in a statement. ‘However the reality is that this accounts for only part of the work they have to deal with.’”
