Making the entire Met Police proud Matt and Mick from  have been handed the special award for the way in which they have truly engaged with members of the public in such an engaging way.

Many would argue that policing and twitter is a waste of time, Here at Police Hour we would simply request you to think outside the box and see how policing accounts is changing the way the media works. Those who fear Twitter simply do not know it. Remember it is here to stay because the positives override the very few negatives.

Those who fear Twitter simply do not know it. Remember it is here to stay because the positives override the very few negatives. Creativity, fun and professionalism are key to a successful account.

Twitter Cops are simply preventing the spread of fake news, letting offenders know they’ll be named and shame and just how amazing and effective and powerful having a policing voice on Twitter can be in breaking barriers and ensuring the public are informed of what is happening and further ensuring they have an insight into what our police officers are doing to prevent crime in the face of increased demand all uploaded and updated in their own time.

Not many people know but Police Officers who tweet, rarely tweet in work time and often spend many of their own hours engaging and responding to members of the public because they are dedicated to the job they do and are dedicated to helping others via the use of Twitter.

Here are some of Matt and Micks best moments that make them worthy Police Award winners for the creative and inspirational way in which they have engaged with Twitter.

What an amazing image from the Police Awards.

Heartwarming cops share chips with man who hasn’t eaten for days

Published

on

Two police officers this evening shared their chips with a man they found on the motorway who hasn’t eaten food in days.

The caring cops showed compassion and humanity when they could have just nicked the lad and sent him off to the cells.

But instead of taking him straight into police custody they stopped off for some chips.

Showing a truly caring side of British traffic cops who often don’t get the best press.

“The cops from the Leicestershire road policing unit tweeted that they had found on motorway suspected to be an illegal immigrant into the UK.

“He’s not eaten for days and we’ve not eaten for hours, so we’ve all shared some fine English cuisine …… a bag of chips!! 👍🏻 🍟”

These truly caring officers have shown this evening that police officers have hearts and they do care about people.

Policing is not always about crime, it’s the small acts of human kindness that go a long way.

We praise these officers for their genuine out of kindness out of their own pocket.

Helen tweeted “I know you’ll probably get people complain but. Compassion, humanity and care are great qualities.”

UK Cop Humour tweeted “Fab stuff and whilst we’re on the topic of spuds: why do potatoes make good detectives? Because they keep their eyes peeled.”

ElAine tweeted “I know some people’s heads will explode at this but well done for your compassion.”

Simply policing at it’s best. What ever your views you have to admit this is compassion and humility at it’s best.

These cops truly deserve to be recognised for great policing work.

Not every job needs to be a tick box, just because it’s a suspected illegal immigrant doesn’t mean they should be treat any different.

Top job with excellent policing skills, that will have ensured this suspect didn’t cause any problems for the officers.

Full up on chips, the officers then processes this man through custody and will refer to the home office immigration services.

Awww Cleveland Police have just recruited these four legged friends

Published

on

Put your paws up for our two new recruits, Maggie and Skye who are the newest and youngest additions to the Force. At just 12 weeks old, the two English Springer Spaniels will soon begin their training to become Specialist Search Dogs.

Dog Trainer Constable Darren Gobie and Police Constable Chris Lambert are the lucky handlers of the pups. PC Lambert teamed up with a year 4 class at Myton Park School in Ingleby Barwick and allowed them to choose Skye’s name.

Chris and Skye will regularly visit the school over the next 18 months to allow them to follow her training process.

Speaking of the collaboration with the school, PC Lambert said: “I thought it would be a great idea to tie in with a school in the local community.

Recruiting new dogs is a huge deal and it’s an exciting and educational opportunity for the pupils to meet a police dog, choose her name collectively as a team and to better understand the training process for police dogs, and police roles in general.

The children were delighted to participate in this and I am sure they will all build a lovely bond with Skye over the coming months.”

PC Lambert, along with partner agencies will also be using the visits to the school to deliver lessons on internet safety and safety around animals.

The officers and the dogs will need to work very closely as team throughout the training process to build a special bond together.

Training is both mentally and physically challenging for both the dogs and handlers, as every programme must be passed to qualify.

Specialist dogs are used to detect a range of things with their highly developed sense of smell such as money, explosives, drugs and firearms.

They are also trained to work in public places including licenses premises to search for people in possession of narcotics.
