The county’s top cop has pledged to embrace social media after joining Twitter in May last year but not making much use of it.
Now Herts Police chief constable Andy Bliss says he will be using the popular online tool to communicate directly with the public.
He said: “After years of resisting change, technology has finally caught up with me and you can now follow me on @cchertspolice.
“I plan to tweet just a few messages a week about operational activity and the great work of my frontline team, snippets about my job as chief constable and updates about my national work tackling drug and heritage crime.
“I hope people find my tweets useful and interesting. As I get more confident I want them to provide some insights into my working world.”
Since joining the social network revolution last year, so far Mr Bliss has tweeted 10 times.
