LAwS Communications to Lead First Global Police Tweet-a-Thon

(Thunder Bay, ON)  On March 22, starting at 8:00 a.m., law enforcement agencies around the world will connect via Twitter to participate in a 24-hour Tweet-a-thon to bring attention to the use of social media by law enforcement.  Agencies will tweet using the same hashtag, #poltwt, to create awareness about police work and issues police face as well as to promote the use of social media in policing.

"We are excited to bring together police agencies around the world in this first of its kind social media event," said Lauri Stevens, founder of LAwS Communications and organizer of the Global Police Tweet-a-thon. "We hope it sends the message to non-law enforcement that their police officers are up to speed with social media, and that they should use the channel to talk with police officers and to be stewards of public safety."

There are currently more than 100 agencies participating from the U.S., Canada, UK, Sweden, Iceland, and Australia. Any agency can join the Tweet-a-thon and tweet any portion of the 24-hour period. For a list of participating agencies, please visit https://twitter.com/ConnectedCOPS/police-tweet-a-thon-2013/members. For a Google map of participating agencies, please see http://goo.gl/maps/Hqkgf

Nishnawbe-Aski Police Service will be tweeting about Recruitment, Patrols, Community Service work, NAPS Facts, and we will be responding to tweets made by other law enforcement agencies during the Tweet-a-thon.  We hope that our participation will not only let the public see our policing but also see on a global perspective how hard we all work to serve and protect the public.
