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…

STRESSED OUT SALFORD COUNCIL STAFF COULD FACE SACK UNDER NEW DRACONIAN RULES

Star date: 20th May 2015

SALFORD CITY COUNCIL STAFF CRACKING UP UNDER STRESS OF CUTS

A new Salford Council report shows that staff are cracking up with stress due to cuts related changes. Two thirds of staff are worried about job insecurity, a quarter found their job stressful and almost a third are experiencing `difficulties with their mental wellbeing' caused, in part, by increased workload and heavy handed managers.

Salford Council's solution?  A Workforce Health and Wellbeing Strategy, which includes draconian absence rules involving stricken staff having meetings with their managers, and the issuing of `notices to improve' that could lead to the sack.

SALFORD COUNCIL BACKTRACKS ON TRADE UNION ATTACK

Star date: 19th May 2015

SALFORD COUNCIL HOLDS TALKS TO TRY AND RESOLVE UNISON ATTACK

Salford Council yesterday began to backtrack on its attack on Salford City UNISON's elected Branch Treasurer, Ameen Hadi, as action was about to escalate against the Labour Council.

A lobby of the Salford Labour Group of councillors, due to be held at 5pm, was postponed after the Council backed down for `a period of meaningful discussions'. The Council originally withdrew the right for the UNISON rep to represent his members but today he is back at the UNISON office doing just that.

HAZEL BLEARS BECOMES CONTROVERSIAL £60,000 CO-OP DIRECTOR

Star date: 18th May 2015

EX SALFORD MP RUNS INTO MORE CONTROVERSY

At a turbulent Annual General Meeting of the Co-operative Group, held in Manchester over the weekend, Hazel Blears became a Member-Nominated Director (MND) on a basic fee of £60,000 a year which will take up `a minimum of approximately one to two days a month'.

Originally there were six candidates standing for the MND but three were stopped from standing, leaving Blears and two others unopposed for the three positions. Furious members of the Co-op said the voting process was "neither transparent, nor objective" and threatened legal action, until it was averted at the last minute.
