Her Majesty’s Inspector of Constabulary thinks Social Media is a waste of time

Thanks to Helen Reynolds for highlighting this story on Twitter.

Apparently, Her Majesty’s Inspector of Constabulary thinks Social Media is a waste of time. He said: “Those who participate in social media and blogs and so on are people who’ve got time on their hands.”

So the person in charge of making sure the police do their jobs doesn’t think they should be using the modern communications tools the public use to inform them about their work? Well done to the police force concerned for standing up to this out-dated nonsense. Let’s hope it doesn’t affect their performance in inspections. Social Media use should improve their efficiency and effectiveness, not detract from it.

Maybe Mr. Winsor should get a special invite to this year’s Blue Light Camp.

  1. Hi John
    Yes would agree that it would be good to invite him to BlueLightCamp this year or even British APCO as we are looking at apps and social media within this sphere also.
    Cheers
