I would like to make a request under the Freedom of Information Act.
Please would you tell me:
1. How many crimes have been reported to your force via Facebook and Twitter during
a) the calendar year 2014
b) the calendar year 2015 to date (26th November 2015, or whichever date is closest)
For each crime please include:
a) the date on which it was reported
b) the crime type
c) whether it was Facebook or Twitter
Please include all official Facebook and Twitter accounts run by your force (but not individual officers’ accounts).
Please find below our response.
West Midlands Police do not take crime reports over Twitter and Facebook. Users would be referred to 101 to report crime.
