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 COUNCILLORS SECRET INTERESTS

Star date: 29th July 2015


A MARY BURNS SPECIAL!!!


In an attempt at accountability and openness Salford City Council has a Register of Interest on the council website where councilors can tell the people of Salford of any benefits they may have had from one of their many executive 'meetings' and power lunches. But for some reason most councilors haven't declared anything on the website for up to two years.

SALFORD AUTHORITIES DECLARE WAR ON COMMUNITY IN CHAPEL STREET

Star date: 28th July 2015

SALIX, POLICE, TRADING STANDARDS, IMMIGRATION PILE INTO ISLINGTON ESTATE

It looks like Salford authorities have decalred war on the community in Chapel Street. Mo, who runs the Shalimar convenience store and is currently battling English Cities Fund for a new unit at Vimto Gardens, has been raided four times in the last few months by Greater Manchester Police, Salford Council Trading Standards and even the Immigration Office in what the community is calling harrassment.  

Meanwhile, in an incredibly draconian move, families on the Estate have been told by Salix Homes that they face eviction if their kids associate with another kid.
