ACPO comment on social media and policing

 

ACPO responds to an announcement today from the Director of Public Prosecutions regarding guidance to prosecutors on social media cases

 

ACPO lead for communications, Chief Constable Andy Trotter, said:

“ACPO welcomes the intention to issue guidance to police and prosecutors and we look forward to participating in the consultation process. Many offensive comments are made every day on social media and guidance will assist the police to focus on the most serious matters. There is not only the matter of principle to be addressed but also the practicality of dealing with thousands of potential offences.”
