The Western Isles will be the first known area in Scotland, to utilise their Police twitter in this way.

Western Isles Area Commander, Chief Inspector Gordon Macleod, said “We want to give the public an insight into the modern day policing of the Western Isles. We already use our page for appeals, traffic information, weather warnings and display some of the work our officers do within the community”

“Between Friday 22nd and Sunday 24th February, our page will show real time activity from emergencies and crimes committed to random callouts”
