The Omaha Police Department will join 150 other police agencies from around the world to take part in a 24-hour tweet-a-thon. Omaha police say the tweet-a-thon is intended to raise awareness of law enforcement's use of social media.
Agencies from six countries will be marked on Twitter by the hashtag (hash)poltwt. Omah police spokeswoman, Lt. Darci Tierney, says her agency hopes to use the event as a virtual ride-along, "giving the community a glimpse of the daily activity and a behind the scenes look at the typical day of a patrol officer." The tweet-a-thon occurs Friday.
