The Arcadia Police Department is participating in a Global Tweet-a-thon on Friday, October 2, 2015. 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? We will participate in this "virtual ride-along" in an effort to give Arcadia residents a glimpse inside the way officers work to keep our community safe.
The Arcadia Police Department will join hundreds of participating law enforcement agencies across multiple countries to take 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.
Please be aware the number of Twitter messages generated in conjunction with the hashtag, #poltwt, and from our agency, @ArcadiaPD, will be in excess of a typical daily number of Twitter messages from our agency. Please take this into consideration should you have “push notifications” activated for our Twitter feed.
