On Friday, the San Leandro Police Department will participate with other law enforcement agencies world-wide in the second Global Tweet-A-Thon. Law enforcement’s goal during this all day event is to increase public awareness about law enforcement, the issues that they face on a daily basis, and to promote the use of social media in policing.
Follow law enforcement agencies world-wide with the hashtag #poltwt.
From noon to midnight, the San Leandro Police Department will tweet real-time information regarding the daily activities of SLPD personnel and incidents that we respond to in the community that we proudly serve.
Friday marks the second world-wide Global Tweet-A-Thon, in which law enforcement agencies hope to reach as many people as possible. In March 2013, 200 law enforcement agencies from 10 different countries sent 48,482 tweets in 25 different languages, reaching 11,203,796 Twitter users, providing them with information about missing persons, vehicle accidents, road closures, scam alerts and much more.
