There has recently been a debate about what police officers & police staff can / should say in the social media and over where the role of the police starts and finishes in light of the draconian 20% budget cuts.
We recently had a solicitor cover it in the summer edition of our magazine Federation Express
In a wider context The Guardian also contributes to the debate.
As does this the Robin Hood airport case
Will the power and influence of social media increase?
But is exactly what support do / can / should police forces give to officers & staff who are targeted on www or via social media for doing their job?
Will they need more as cop numbers continue to be cut
Why is all the focus in what you can’t do with nothing on what support you may expect if maliciously targeted?
