The NRW police on Facebook
We always have something to report. We also do this on Facebook. Sometimes informative about the job profile, sometimes preventative, sometimes local.

What does a trainee government inspector actually do? And what are the tasks of an electrical engineer in the police force? Our colleagues regularly inform you about these job profiles and the diverse career opportunities in the police.

Why "test1234" is not a good password, how you can make your children strong against cyberbullying and how you can protect grandma from grandchild tricks and many more preventative tips from our colleagues at the LKA.

How many police stations are there in NRW? Where are the water police active? What does an emergency vehicle look like? You can find out this and more about our diverse day-to-day police work from our colleagues at the LZPD.

And if you're looking for something even more local, our colleagues would be delighted to see you on their Facebook pages!

What Facebook learns:

What data Facebook stores in detail and how the company uses this data is not exactly known. What is certain is that Facebook not only stores data entered directly by users, but also records the actions of Facebook users.

Facebook also learns

  • the most important data of the computer system from which a user logs into the network - including IP address, processor type and browser version including plug-ins and
  • every visit to websites (widget data) on which a "Like" button is installed. The IP address is also transmitted. If the visitor to the third-party site is a Facebook user and has already logged in to Facebook from the same computer, Facebook can also determine their identity.
