Guernsey Police will spend 24-hours live tweeting everything that they do this weekend as part of their social media initiative, #TweetontheBeat.
From 17:00 tonight (11 June), Guernsey Police will be releasing live updates on their social media pages in order to showcase all of the work that they do over the course of three shifts. The campaign aims to provide the community with a greater understanding of what a day in the life of a Guernsey Police officer is like.
This is the third time that Guernsey Police have run the initiative, following the success of their 2015 and 2017 campaigns.
They'll be taking the opportunity to share information regarding the different roles, responsibilities, and functions of the Guernsey Police and the Guernsey Border Agency.

“We want to give a real, relatively unfiltered, look into what our officers deal with to help keep our community safe," said Guernsey Police Deputy Chief Officer Ian Scholes.
He added that the content of the tweets will be broad and all-encompassing: from the incidents encountered by officers on the beat in town on Saturday night, to the administrative work carried out by law enforcement officers behind the scenes.
“Law Enforcement work involves a number of elements that are at the front and centre of the public eye, however there are also teams and individual staff who perform roles critical to the organisation. Whilst we want to use #TweetontheBeat to highlight the incidents our operational shifts respond to on a regular basis, we will also be highlighting the wide-ranging work that goes on across the Police Station, and wider Law Enforcement Functions.”
#TweetontheBeat can be engaged with by all members of the public via the @GuernseyPolice Twitter page and the Bailiwick Law Enforcement Facebook Page; it is hoped that it will provide valuable insight and clarity to the Guernsey public.
