Request to help find people on Social media.
The Neighbourhood Police team is asking everyone to think hard before providing any information about other persons on social media.
There are frequent requests made on social media by people looking to locate long lost friends, looking for delivery addresses for misdirected mail.
Passing information can be done with the best of intentions however, we are aware that on occasions violent domestic perpetrators trying to locate their previous partners use this tactic on social media.
We strongly advise that you never give out another person’s personal details including, any address, work place, school that children may go to, phone details or anything else that may help identify them.
Always talk to the person being sought and let them make contact if the wish.
