Social media’s a hit with police

SOCIAL networking is helping people in the Todmorden and Hebden Bridge areas to connect with the police.

Inspector Dave Browning said the upper Calder Valley Neighbourhood Policing Team is celebrating 40,000 hits on their Facebook site which he hailed a great result after just six months.

Inspector Browning said: “I’m a big fan of Facebook, Twitter and our website which are all boosting people’s confidence in the Upper Valley police.”
