Surrey Police used their Twitter account (@SurreyPolice) to describe what happened during a robbery in real time, a ‘Tweetconstruction’ on the one month anniversary of an incident that took place in Epsom in hopes of finding witnesses.

The robbery took place on January 30 outside a Co-Op where a robber stole a cashbox containing GBP 45,000 from a cash delivery worker.

The Tweetconstruction reached over 53,000 Twitter users, was viewed 2,000 times on Facebook and 350 page views on Storify.

According to Detective Sergeant Oana King from Epsom CID: “Detectives have been working closely with the communications team to scope new and interesting ideas around utilising the media when it comes to investigations.”.

“Due to the amount of images we had available we believed this would be an excellent way to reach those people who may not have previously known about the incident,” he added.
