According to a press release by the force
Asst Chief Const Gordon Scobbie has taken up the brand new Association of Chief Police Officers portfolio for digital engagement.
The new post has been created to widen the way police forces communicate with members of the public using social media such as networking sites, blogs, Twitter and YouTube.
ACC Scobbie says that
"Many forces are now realising that traditional methods of getting messages out which we have relied on in the past are having less impact and are reaching fewer and fewer people.
"Over the last 12 months or so there have been radical changes in the way people interact with each other. Social networking has exploded globally.
