Cambridge Police to Participate in Second Global Police Tweet-a-Thon
CPD will join more than 100 participating agencies across six countries to take to Twitter Nov 1st
On November 1st, starting at 8 a.m., law enforcement agencies around the world will connect via Twitter to participate in a 24-hour Tweet-a-thon to bring attention to the use of social media by law enforcement.
Agencies will tweet using the same hashtag, #poltwt, to create awareness about police work and issues police face as well as to promote the use of social media in policing.
"We have participation from agencies in New Zealand and Kenya all over Europe, Canada and the US.” said Lauri Stevens, founder of LAwS Communications and organizer of the Global Police Tweet-a-thon. "We’re calling attention to the great police work being done globally as well as connecting cops around the world.”
Any agency can join the Tweet-a-thon and tweet during the 24-hour period.
“With our heavy focus on social media as a way to inform and engage our community, we’re proud to participate,” said Dan Riviello, Cambridge Police Director of Communications & Media Relations. “More and more law enforcement agencies are now using Twitter and we’re excited to tweet with them.”
