Twitter has started verifying UK Police Officers on Twitter. Personally it is great to see Police Officers being honoured with the ‘Blue Tick’ for their hard work and dedication.

To be fair most police officers continue to help the public on twitter long after they have state 9ed (AKA clocked out). In fact most Police Officers only tweet when they aren’t at work.

Until recently Twitter only seemed to be honouring Police Officers based in the United States with the ‘Blue Tick’.

Here are some of our favourite Police Officers who have already been verified on twitter.

Chief Inspector Kerry Blakeman

Sergeant Harry Tangye

Police Constable Mark Walsh

Special Sergeant Rothstein

Chief Inspector Chris Casey

Police Constable Alan Conran 


Sergeant Alistair Jackson

Sergeant Neil (TCS)
