Strathearn PC Euan Mitchell has teed-off in his new role as dedicated police community engagement officer for the Ryder Cup.
He’s already busy preparing for the international golfing competition, which takes place at Gleneagles next year, and has just set up a feed on social network website Twitter so local people can follow his progress.
PC Mitchell was appointed by Tayside Police to work with locals and event planners to help resolve any issues the 2014 Ryder Cup might throw up for residents.
Throughout the past few weeks, he’s been attending community council and other public meetings to introduce himself to local people and explain what his new role involves, as well as attending planning meetings for the sporting showpiece.
PC Mitchell’s Twitter feed, ‘@RyderCupPC’ has been set up to allow anyone with questions about the contest to air their views. He poses a daily `brainteaser’ question about the Ryder Cup, and golfing in general, for his followers.
