SALFORD POLICE USE TWITTER TO KEEP IN TOUCH

Salford people can now use Twitter to see what the police are up to in their area and to interact with cops on the beat.

The new police Twitter service is available in all areas of Salford but the Salford Star went down to East Salford to see how it's working on the streets…

@GMPSalfordEast
We've just discovered a Cannabis Farm on Lower Broughton Road. 37 plants in total. Know where anymore are? 0161 8725050!

@GMPSalfordEast
A male has just been arrested on the Crescent for Robbery and 2 Assault Police following an incident outside the Salford Art Gallery.

PCSO Andy Shaw is sat in The Angel community centre showing us how Twitter is working to keep the people in touch with the police in Salford. But then you'd know that if you'd been plugged into the GMPSalfordEast Twitter account because it's already up there… `Interview with @salfordstar09 this morning. Out on patrol in #trinity and #blackfriars today!'

The real time tool that's being used to promote inanities and footballers' foibles has now been taken up by the Greater Manchester Police as a communication link with the community.

"We've only just started using it in last few weeks we can regularly update the public on what we're doing in the area, police surgeries, any appeals, crimes…anything that's happened in people's neighbourhoods" says Andy "I could say `We've just stopped four lads in Broughton who are known offenders, keep your eyes out for any suspicious activity, give us a ring we are out and about'…

"People can message us too" he adds "They can tell us if they see anything suspicious, or ask us about crime prevention and we can either tell them to ring 872 5050 or go and have a look ourselves . People have asked questions already and it's been working great. We started off with around thirty followers and it's already grown to around 130."

While Andy has been specially trained to be the `voice' of East Salford police on Twitter, the other four neighbourhood police teams in the city are also Twittered up.

To see what's going off on the beat either click here or go to www.twitter.com and search your local police…

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL TO BE LOBBIED BY UNIONS AND DISABLED CHILDREN’S PARENTS

Star date: 21st February 2017

SALFORD COUNCIL IGNORES UNIONS AND INSISTS THAT THE GRANGE WILL CLOSE

Lobby of Salford City Council
Wednesday 22nd February 8:15am-9am
Civic Centre, Swinton

Salford City Council has ignored trade unions and parents of disabled children who urged it to Save The Grange. Salford Mayor, Paul Dennett, a so-called Corbynite, in a response to the unions states the Council 'disagrees' with all the arguments to keep open Salford's only disabled children's home.

Tomorrow morning, parents of children who are at The Grange and trade union will lobby councillors before a full meeting of the Council to rubber stamp almost £16million of cuts.

CONSULTATIONS ON FUTURE OF SALFORD ‘DIDN’T MAKE SENSE’ ADMITS GMCA

Star date: 20th February 2017

MASSIVE GREEN BELT AND HOUSING PLANS 'DIDN'T MAKE SENSE TO ORDINARY PEOPLE'

Consultations on the future of Salford and every other area of Greater Manchester were "bewildering" and didn't "make sense to ordinary people" the Greater Manchester Combined Authority (GMCA) has admitted in a report to be discussed this week.

These consultations on devolution and the GM Spatial Framework were to decide on things like Green Belt destruction, how many houses were to be built and lots more. They were absolutely crucial to the future of the area, and for the GMCA to admit they didn't make sense is staggering, if true.
