DGP Javeed Ahmad on Saturday directed the SPs of all 75 districts in the state to create accounts for police units in each district on micro-blogging site Twitter, in order to “establish direct contact with the public”.

He held a review of the Twitter handles used by various police units at a meeting. In a subsequent circular, he asked SPs to create Twitter handles with the name of their district followed by “police”, adding that the SPs could also have individual accounts with their designation mentioned in the handle.

SPs, DIGs and IGs have been asked to get Twitter configured in their official mobile phones, so they could take note of the complaints forwarded by the DGP headquarters’s Twitter handle. The officers have also been asked to publicise good work on their Twitter handles.

The SPs were also directed to form a social media cell under their Public Relations Officers, like the one established at DGP headquarters, in which two employees will work in two shifts from 8 am to 10 pm. A police spokesperson said training would soon be at headquarters for the officials who will maintain the Twitter accounts.
