Punjab Police marks presence on social media

The Punjab Police marked its presence on the social media to counter misinformation campaign and false propaganda unleashed by radicals or gangsters to influence people, especially youth.

Chief Minister Captain Amarinder Singh formally launched the online campaign of the Punjab Police.

With this, the Facebook page of the Punjab Police (facebook.com/PunjabPoliceIndia), Twitter account of Punjab Police (twitter.com/PunjabPolice), Twitter account of the director general of police and YouTube channel of the Punjab Police have gone live.

“The social media campaign of the police will go a long way in bridging the gap between the police and the citizens, and also in tackling the abuse of social media by gangsters and criminals seeking to spread terror in the state”, the chief minister said at the launch ceremony.

The social media accounts will provide an effective forum for information dissemination/feedback/complaint channelling, said the chief minister, urging the police to harness the social media power effectively, for the mutual benefit of the force and the citizens.
