Gloucestershire Constabulary will be showcasing a typical day in policing to the public by holding a 24 hour Twitterthon.

Ongoing incidents and various departments within the force will be tweeted about during the live event, which will take place between 7am on Friday 13 January and 7am on Saturday 14 January.

Where appropriate, details of incoming calls to our force control room will be released, as well as interesting facts and figures about the Constabulary. The Twitterthon will also include an insight into various aspects of the force such as forensics, witness care, public protection bureau, incident response team, roads policing and custody.

Ahead of the event, Chief Constable Suzette Davenport, said: “This Twitterthon is our chance to show you the variety of incidents we deal with on a daily basis.

“Police themed films and documentaries can give a dramatic and inaccurate portrayal of our work, but this event will showcase the reality of policing within Gloucestershire.

“We hope the Twitterthon will help our communities understand what it is we do all day, every day of the year to support them, help protect them from harm and bring offenders to justice.”

The Twitterthon will take place on Gloucestershire Constabulary’s Twitter page: www.twitter.com/Glos_Police and on the hashtag: #GlosPol24
