Thames Valley Police will be taking to social media websites as part of their summer burglary campaign this month.
A 24-hour tweetathon is being hosted, where officers will be tweeting about reported burglaries between 8pm tonight and 8pm tomorrow.
Safety advice aimed at helping householders to prevent burglaries will also be issued such as making sure windows and doors are locked at night, even if the weather is hot.
John Campbell, Assistant Chief Constable, said: “By using social media in this way, I hope the Force is able to continue building relations with the whole of the Thames Valley community.
“We hope the public will find our approach an interesting and informative experience and will gain useful crime reduction advice.”
