Gladstone police launch blog to get information out fast

GLADSTONE police are taking law and order online, with the launch of the myPolice Gladstone blog.

Capricornia District Officer Ron Van Saane said the website would give the community access to emergency policing information, and prevent incorrect information circulating during operations.

"It will make a big difference to community awareness, with information going out almost immediately," Mr Van Saane said.

A similar website was launched in Rockhampton six weeks ago, and has already received more than 30,000 hits.

Maryborough, South Brisbane and Bundaberg have similar blogs. Sites also include suburb-by-suburb crime statistics.
