On Friday, November 1, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. the San Mateo County Sheriff’s Office will join law enforcement agencies around the world participating in a global tweet-a-thon using the hashtag #PolTwt.
Through this event, law enforcement agencies use their Twitter accounts in a number of different ways to reach their respective communities and increase their community engagement. The Sheriff’s Office has engaged in several virtual ride-alongs prior to this event, but never in coordination with an international effort such as this. This event was held for the first time in March of 2013 and over 200 law enforcement agencies participated across 10 countries worldwide, reaching more than 11 million Twitter users.
In response to follower’s requests, the Sheriff’s Office will be riding along on a coastside patrol shift with Sheriff’s Office K9-Vodo this Friday. Ride along at https://twitter.com/SMCSheriff
