The newly appointed head of Essex Police has asked staff to try and avoid using emails on Wednesdays.
Chief constable Roger Baker, who took up his role last month, has asked staff to talk to each other whenever possible, rather than relying on email. The plan is to reduce email traffic on Wednesdays to a bare minimum.
"Obviously we're not banning emails," said a spokesman for Essex Police. " It's merely reducing the use of email in an effort to get people to talk more. Email will still be used where needed."
Chief constable Baker has already advised burglars in Essex to "bring your toothbrush because you will not be going home".
