ACPO response to Crown Prosecution Service interim guidelines on prosecuting cases involving communications sent via social media

PUBLISHED December 19, 2012

ACPO lead on e-crime Chief Constable Andy Trotter said:

"This interim guidance sets out clear advice to police forces in England and Wales on handling complaints from the public relating to social media. It takes a common sense approach and will help support consistency from prosecutors and police. We welcome the opportunity for early consultation to take place between CPS and police before any action is taken in these cases."
