Recently, the Commissioner of Police, Owen Ellington urged police officers to use the social media to investigate crimes. I agree with Ellington’s recommendation because I believe that if officers take advantage of these networks they would be able to investigate many crimes quickly, and solve them in timely fashion. In fact, I hope that officers were already making use of these mediums.
Now is the time to use all avenues available in order to provide intelligence in investigations. Many persons are so chatty that they actually post anything they do, at any given time constantly on these networks. What better way to gather information in this modern era than on Facebook? Follow them on twitter and you will perhaps get their thoughts about any and everything throughout the day.
What do you think about using social networks to investigate crimes? Do you disagree or agree with this move? It’s time again to have your say…
