Preston North End supporters are being urged to take to twitter as the Lancashire Constabulary look to improve supporters’ match day experience.
Football Intelligence Officers of Lancashire Constabulary will engage with fans on the account @PNEPolice.
By looking at the account, supporters can find out details about match day advice such as; parking, match day travel, issues with the rail network and places to eat and drink that accept away supporters.
The service has already proved successful after a major accident on the M6 south closed the road and supporters heading to Peterborough were alerted well in advance.
Paul Elliott, Football Intelligence Officer for Preston North End said: “Primarily the objective is to inform and interact with PNE supporters.
“As I attend most, if not all, of the games home and away the PNE supporters are used to seeing my face, particularly at away games as you tend to get a hard-core of supporters travelling.”
Mr Elliott is hoping to attract more Preston supporters as well as fans of other clubs in the league, who are travelling to all matches.
PNE’s official twitter recognises the importance of the account by retweeting a number of the tweets from the account, which already has 650 followers.
