Wyoming DPS holding ‘Tweet Along’

WYOMING, Mich. (WOOD) — The Wyoming Department of Public Safety will have officers tweeting live while responding to calls Wednesday.

The officers will tweet from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, updating each time they’re dispatched to a call or they make a traffic stop once they’re in a safe place to tweet.

The department said they will not be posting any photos of victims, witnesses, license plates or exact addresses.

People can follow the virtual police ride-along through the Twitter handle @WyomingCityHall or search hashtags #WyDPS or #tweetalong.

They’re hoping the Tweet Along will help show the public what they do on a daily basis and help in crime awareness and transparency.

The department told 24 Hour News 8 they hope to utilize social media to share surveillance photos and get tips on suspects in the future.
