The Metropolitan Police Service launched a campaign across Waltham Forest yesterday to increase confidence in crime solving in the borough.

For the next two weeks officers will be advertising what they are doing in each area using posters and social networking sites.

A spokesman said: "It aims to communicate actions local police have taken to cut crime or help solve problems locally, using a mixture of borough wide, ward wide and street level messages."

A coppers job is to catch crooks. Do they really need to use social media to say that?

The police have lost confidence because of the crime statistic fiddling, corruption, incompetence, lack of visibility, Station closures, PCSO's and so on. Most people will not bother to read Social networking sites. The see for themselves what is going on in the street and make their own mind up. If the police want to instil confidence they should show a constant presence on the streets and tackle anti-social behaviour and be more easily and readily accessible.
