You may notice over the next couple of months that a few of our old social media accounts will be closing down and redirecting their followers to follow the accounts above. This it to make it much easier for our communities to find out about North Yorkshire Police and what is happening in their area, and enable us to respond to the issues that matter most to them more quickly and effectively.
