“The police are to receive

training on how to use Facebook and Twitter

to catch people committing serious crimes. The National Policing Improvement Agency (NPIA) will overhaul its training modules to include sessions on the social networking sites for detectives. ‘This programme is a vital part of the career pathway for detectives and the new training covers sensitive areas of policing where limited guidance existed previously,’ said deputy chief constable Nick Gargan, acting head of the NPIA, in a statement to the Press Association. ‘These improvements are exactly what detectives need to tackle the challenges and complexities of modern policing effectively,’ he added. ‘The changes underline the importance to having a national agency to provide guidance and train detectives to a single high standard so they can work on investigations in any part of the country and give their colleagues and the public the best quality service in fighting crime.’”
