Cops waste no time on Facebook

TWEED police will explain the NSW Police Force social media initiative Project Eyewatch at Tweed City Shopping Centre today.

Tweed police have been communicating with the public through Facebook since August last year.

The social media page gives police the opportunity to report information to the public and Neighbourhood Watch groups who can then relay information back.

Tweed Valley Neighbourhood Watch secretary Gordon Levenson said the project had "taken the state by storm."

"This is a great step forward where the police and the community can work together in solving crime and keeping our streets a lot safer," Mr Levenson said.

"Come and see how it all works, maybe you might like to get involved."

Project architect Chief Inspector Joshua Maxwell will be available to answer any questions.

You will find the team between Woolworths supermarket and Big W from 10am and 4pm (NSW).
