Once again Sarnia Police will be demonstrating their staunch commitment to connecting with the public and how they’ve embraced social media coming off their very successful inaugural Tweet-a-Thon that was held on Canada Day
Sarnia Police Service will be hosting another Tweet-a-Thon on Saturday, Sep. 8 starting at 8 p.m. The first one was held on Canada Day of this year and drew much publicity and praise from followers. Many asked when the Service would be doing another one, so the date has been selected for this weekend.
Sarnia Police launched their Twitter page less than a year ago, and was hoping to have 500 followers by Christmas of 2011. Thanks to public support, the Sarnia Police Twitter account currently has 2,845 followers, a number that’s greatly surpassed their expectations.
Like they did previously, local police will be “tweeting” each and every call they respond to and each incident they come across during their Tweet-a-Thon.
Sarnia Police also has a Fraud Watch Twitter account which can be found at @SPS_FraudWatch. Followers can read about alerts and receive safety tips on Identify Theft and fraud scams.
The Sarnia Police Deputy Chief also has a Twitter account; @DepChiefFarlow.
The police twitter account address is @SarniaPolice.
