Facebook an investigative tool, Commish tells cops
KINGSTON, Jamaica — Members of the island's security forces should use technology such as social media in the fight against crime, says ??Police Commissioner Owen Ellington.
"Every social network is a valuable source of intelligence or information," Ellington commented in the latest edition of Force Orders.
“Facebook is the most popular used social network worldwide and all investigators should get in the habit of using this resource to assist in their investigation," the Commissioner instructed.
According to the Commissioner, with over one billion profiles of individuals and groups, 70,000 new users added each day and 350 million images, chats and pertinent data uploaded daily, investigators should strive to utilise the technology more.
