Bobby’s Blog At Plymouth Herald
The highest ranking police officer in Plymouth is writing a blog for the local newspaper website.
Chief Superintendent Jim Webster is keeping a regularly updated blog for the Plymouth Evening Herald and it is already encouraging community cohesion and understanding.
For example, the police commander uses the blog as a tool for communicating directly with members of the public and he also uses it to post replies to letters submitted to the Herald’s online correspondence section.
And in his latest post he discusses the force’s Insight Patrol project where individuals are allowed to accompany police officers in the line of duty to gain an insight into their world.
The Chief Super is also no slouch with multimedia tools and the blog already features an embedded YouTube video showing a police film made last year using a head-cam.
Herald Web Editor Neil Shaw told holdthefrontpage.co.uk: “The blog has been an instant success and gives a genuine insight into what our most senior police officer believes should be his priorities, and what he intends to do about them.”
He adds: “Web exclusive content always proves popular with our readers and users, especially when it touches on topics such as crime and disorder.”
