“I want to be as close to the communities of Wiltshire as possible but I recognise that to do that, I need to be more accessible too and this is a fantastic way of ensuring that happens. I aim to update my followers with news on my daily activities as well offer my opinions on policing matters both within our force and the wider national stories and events.”
