(WICHITA, Kan.) — If you "like" the job Wichita Police are doing, let them know about it by following the department's Facebook page.
For about two months, police have been pounding the computer keyboard with Facebook posts and Twitter messages to tell citizens about everything from specific crimes in their neighborhoods, to timely traffic alerts.
"If detectives or officers have some information on a case say like a suspect's photo or surveillance video or something like that, we can put that out and ask for information," said Officer Jerod Metcalf, the face behind WPD's social media effort.
The police department has more than 3,100 followers to its Facebook page. This month, its posts have been seen by more than 393,000 users.
