Come on the Kansas City Police “tweet along” Saturday
Kansas City Police will once again give the public a first-hand look at what happens on an officer’s typical shift in their tweet-along Saturday.
From approximately 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. May 25, a member of the department’s Media Unit will ride along with officers in the Metro Patrol Division and tweet everything that happens on the social media site, Twitter. The public is invited to follow along at twitter.com/kcpolice. The event will use the hashtag #kctweetalong.
Any information that could endanger someone – such as victims’ names or exact addresses – will not be tweeted.
KCPD has done multiple tweet-alongs since April 2012 to give the public a better idea of what officers face on a given shift. With more than 20,000 followers, Kansas City Police are the fifth-most followed major city police department in the United States on Twitter, according to the International Association of Chiefs of Police Center for Social Media.
