Devon and Cornwall is the largest policing area in England - so we need to give you as many options as we can to read, watch or hear about our work.

As well as using social media like Twitter and Facebook, where possible we try to upload audio and, or, video files to accompany our news releases.

Audioboom gives us the chance to upload audio from interviews with the PCC and key managers. Very often these are supplied to local radio stations to support our media releases.

PCC TV, which is available free via YouTube, gives us the chance to broadcast the police and crime commissioner's statements on key issues affecting policing across the peninsula.

It also means that when members of the public ask the PCC to put questions to senior police officers, as part of the bi-monthly performance and accountability board (PAB) that we can film the answers and broadcast them.

Anyone who would like to ask a question at an upcoming PAB should email:
