Birmingham South Police started a second 24 hour twitter marathon today, enabling members of the public to see what goes on in a typical day.
West Midlands Police already use social media to engage with users very successfully.
During the twitter marathon, or ‘tweetathon’, officers and staff will be passing on even more via the @bhamsouthpolice twitter stream.
Between 3 and 5pm, Weoley Castle resident, IT consultant and twitter user Richard Tubbs (@tubblog) will be live-tweeting as he accompanies Sergeant Tim Evans as a passenger in one of the Birmingham South Police cars, as Sgt Evans responds to call outs.
If you’re not on twitter you can view all tweets from or mentioning “@bhamsouthpolice” in the widget below.
