(Versailles, Ind.) – Consider the Indiana State Police part of the social media explosion.
Last week, the ISP announced that it has joined popular networking websites Twitter and Facebook. The law enforcement organization’s Twitter page can be found at http://www.twitter.com/indstatepolice while the Facebook page is located at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Indiana-State-Police-Public-Information-Office/119531358091471.
“We, as a public service agency, are keenly aware of the public’s desire to be informed about their surroundings, especially when it pertains to public safety. Use of social networking is one more way the Indiana State Police can reach out to the public we serve,” said Indiana State Police Superintendent Paul Whitesell, Ph.D.
Troopers will use Twitter to post up-to-the minute information about traffic events, criminal investigations that could affect safety, Amber Alerts, hazardous weather, and more.
Facebook will be used to share news releases, videos, pictures and other information about programs and services offered by the state police.
