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…

Full story here…

@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 COMPANY TO BE TARGETED IN DISABLED CUTS PROTEST

Next Tuesday, 6th September, on the eve of the Paralympics in Rio, a Salford company is to be targeted by MDPAC (Manchester Disabled People Against Cuts) to raise awareness that disabled people's rights are being attacked from every angle, as part of a nationwide #RightsNotGames week of action..

SCANDAL AFOOT AS PEEL LOBBIES PLANNING COUNCILLORS BEHIND CLOSED DOORS

"Will Salford residents ever get a fair hearing with respect to Peel planning applications?" resident 

Residents who are objecting to Peel Holdings' plan to build 132 houses on greenfield land in Boothstown are furious after the company was found to have been lobbying planning councillors behind closed doors at a `pre-panel briefing' in June.

Over one hundred residents expressed formal concern at Peel's plans during an official consultation but then the company went into overdrive soliciting support. Is it an abuse of the system? Salford Council's Monitoring Officer is on leave until after the planning meeting.
