Bureau of Crime Statistics and Research

Twitter policy

The BOCSAR Twitter account is managed by our Information team, on behalf of colleagues across the Bureau. If you follow us, you can expect between 0-5 tweets a day covering some or all of the following:          

  • BOCSAR press releases       
  • Information on what we are up to (seminars and conferences)
  • Statistics on crime and criminal justice issues in NSW
  • Relevant external news releases, speeches and statements

If you follow @BOCSAR we will not automatically follow you back. Please note that being followed by BOCSAR does not imply endorsement of any kind.

We will update and monitor our Twitter account during office hours, Monday to Friday. Twitter may occasionally be unavailable and we accept no responsibility for lack of service due to Twitter downtime.

We welcome feedback and ideas from all our followers, and endeavour to join the conversation where possible. However, we are not able to reply individually to all the messages we receive via Twitter. The Information team reads all @replies and Direct Messages and ensures that any emerging themes or helpful suggestions are passed to the relevant people at BOCSAR. We cannot engage on issues of party politics or answer questions which break the rules of our general comments policy. The usual ways of contacting us for official correspondence are detailed in the contact us section of our website.
