Chinchilla cops now on Facebook
CHINCHILLA Police have taken crime fighting to the digital realm and opened their own Facebook page this week, Chinchilla Station.
Officer-in-charge Sergeant Gerard Brady said the page was not for reporting crime or making public complaints but for police to disseminate localised information directly to the community in a timely manner.
After observing some of the teething issues in online forums in recent years, Sgt Brady warned against allowing the page to turn into a “gripe forum”.
Because the page is not officially marked with the Queensland Police logo, there will be an element of freedom for the Chinchilla Station to advertise local events, traffic crashes, crime trends and lost property.
The Chinchilla Station page trailed the popular Miles Cops page on Wednesday, with 286 likes to 1559.
