And now police say Facebook reduced crime

Selangor police has Facebook to thank for the reduction of crime in the state, says Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Ismail Omar.

Ismail said there were more than 2,000 online users who have used Facebook as a platform to interact with the authorities since Selangor police started their Facebook account in May this year.

"From our observation, we have seen the public using the Facebook page to tip off the police. Some also provide valuable information to facilitate police investigations. The police use the page to disseminate information to the public, especially on matters concerning their safety," he said at the Selangor police contingent headquarters yesterday - Malay Mail
