Face­book en­ables cam­era re­cov­ery

Kapi-Mana News - - NEWS -

So­cial me­dia came to the as­sis­tance of Porirua po­lice last week.

Kapi- Mana News re­ceived a re­quest from po­lice fol­low­ing their re­cov­ery of a cam­era, be­lieved to have been stolen from the Porirua or Welling­ton area.

The mem­ory stick fea­tured pho­to­graphs of a fam­ily out­ing.

One of the pho­tos was posted on our Face­book page in the hope one of our fans could iden­tify the fam­ily. Af­ter 70 ‘‘shares’’ and a dozen com­ments, the woman in the pho­to­graph was iden­ti­fied by a co-worker.

The cam­era was soon re­turned to the grate­ful fam­ily.

Vic­to­ria Evans, se­nior ad­viser pub­lic af­fairs for po­lice, said it was a great re­sult and an ex­am­ple of the mod­ern way in which a community can watch out for each other.
