Fullerton PD forms social media team to communicate with residents around the clock
By Greg Hardesty
They don’t have a fancy name yet —- the Fantastic Four, anyone? — but a newly formed social media team at the Fullerton PD has a noble mission:
Ramp up community engagement with 24/7 postings on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram with information Fullerton residents, business owners and visitors to the city need to know.
Why is that police helicopter circling around?
What’s the deal with all the law enforcement activity on (insert street name here)?
How is the K9 who got injured doing?
Police agencies answering these and other similar questions via social media isn’t new.
But the Fullerton PD has formalized its approach to social media by having four employees — three sworn, and all agency veterans — handle coverage around the clock.
