Another police officer in Ipswich will take control of the force’s Twitter account this week as part of a campaign to highlight the work of its staff.

On Wednesday PCSO Rachel Worobec from Ipswich South East Safer Neighbourhood Team will be tweeting from the account @IpswichPolice between 8am and 5pm.

PCSO Worobec, who has been in the job for seven years, said: “Within Ipswich South East Safer Neighbourhood Team there are six primary schools and Ipswich Academy. Part of my role is being the Primary School Liaison Officer, which involves visiting the primary schools on a regular basis, liaising with the family support workers and delivering inputs to the children on topics such as internet safety.

“I really enjoy this part of my role and it is important for building relationships with the children.

“Another big part of my current role is dealing with local issues and problem solving, which although is challenging can be very rewarding.”

Inspector Gary Miller, who has led the campaign, said the use of Twitter was a great way for the public to see what officers’ roles involved.

“I am keen for the residents of Ipswich to get an insight into the type of jobs and incidents that the local community teams deal with on a daily basis,” he added.
