A list of all UK police forces, stations, officers, etc on Twitter.
 
Our Twitter list @TheABD/police includes all forces and selected other twitterers. You can follow this list if you want police updates from the whole country.
 
The table below list all police twitterers that we know about. Omissions can be advised to our webmaster via our Contacts page. But it would be better if police officers using Twitter can persuade their force to do what Leicestershire Police do and set up a list of all their officers using Twitter (@leicspolice/leics-police). This makes it easier for everyone to find you and effectively authenticates your Twitter account.
 
West Midlands Police seem to be embarrassing all other forces in terms of the number of officers using Twitter. Whilst one force (highlighted red) is presumably still using blue police boxes to communicate…
