New police Twitter account goes to the dogs
PUBLISHED: 17:30 14 June 2013
TWO social media accounts dedicated to police dogs and horses have been set up by Avon and Somerset Constabulary.
The Twitter accounts @ASPoliceHorses and @ASPoliceDogs were unveiled with the hashtags #followthepaw and #followthehoof.
The accounts say their aim is to keep the public up to date with the canine unit and mounted officers.
The force is not the first in the country to have a Twitter account set up for their animals, with West Yorkshire’s police dog account tweeting more than 12,000 times.
