Global Police Tweet-a-thon Returns Friday, December 19th

A Day on Patrol with Your Local Police or Sheriff – Arcadia PD to Participate in Global Tweet-a-thon

The Arcadia Police Department is participating in a Global Tweet-a-thon. What is it like to patrol the streets of Arcadia on a Friday morning or evening? What types of calls do Arcadia officers respond to? In an effort to give Arcadia residents a glimpse inside the way officers work to keep our community safe, the Arcadia Police Department will participate in the Global Police Tweet-a-thon on Friday, December 19, 2014 between 8:00 a.m. and midnight. (Virtual ride-along)

Officers from the Arcadia Police Department will join law enforcement agencies across the globe in taking to Twitter in an effort to bring attention and understanding to the use of social media by law enforcement.

Agencies will tweet using the same hashtag, #poltwt, to create awareness about police work and law enforcement issues, as well as to promote the use of social media and transparency in law enforcement. The theme for this event is #TimetoUnify.

Make sure to mark your calendars for this Friday, December 19th and follow us @ArcadiaPD between 8:00 a.m. and midnight. If you don’t already use Twitter, sign up for free at https://twitter.com/ArcadiaPD.

Please be aware the number of Twitter messages generated for the Global Tweet-a-thon from our agency, @ArcadiaPD, will be in excess of what may be considered a normal daily number of Twitter messages. Please take this into consideration should you have “push notifications” activated for our Twitter feed.

Your @ArcadiaPD hosts for the day will be @TRLeVeque and @Crowther439. Our Watch Commanders can be reached at 626-574-5156 or please engage with us on Twitter.
