The Police Commissioner Owen Ellington is urging members of the police force to utilize Facebook and other social media networks in their investigation of crimes.
In this week’s Force Orders, the commissioner described social networks as valuable sources of information.
The police commissioner noted that with more than one billion profiles of individuals and groups on the network, Facebook, can also provide intelligence in investigations through its chats and uploaded data.
The Police Commissioner says investigators must visit Facebook to gather information on a complainant, a victim or a suspect.
He says police personnel can also create a social network account for the purpose of intelligence gathering.
