Mumbai and Pune police departments have been on top of their social media game. Whether it be sensitising people about cyber security or making them aware about precautionary measures against the novel coronavirus, both the teams have been a pro at it.
Recently, the Pune police took to Twitter to share a clip from the popular show The Office. The main aim behind sharing this clip was to make people aware about frauds and cyber crime. Captioning the video, the police wrote, “Never give out personal or banking information over calls- they can be used to access your accounts. It won't take long for the 'turntables' if you do.”
