WRPD To Host Virtual Ride-Along

You are invited to patrol the streets with an officer from the Warner Robins Police Department – via Twitter!

The Warner Robins Police Department is holding the first ever “Virtual Ride-Along” via Twitter on Thursday, December 6th from 6:00 P.M. until 2:00 A.M.  

Public Information Officer Tabitha Pugh will be riding with a patrol officer and tweeting calls for service, arrests, and anything else the officer encounters during his shift.  Some tweets will include pictures and videos to give the viewer a more visual experience. 

The “Virtual Ride-Along” is designed to give the community a glimpse into the daily life of a police officer patrolling the streets of Warner Robins.  Citizens can view the ride-along by following @WarnerRobinsPD on Twitter. 

PIO Pugh and the officer will be taking questions during the ride-along from Twitter users who mention @WarnerRobinsPD in their tweet.  They will answer questions as time permits.

The Warner Robins Police Department launched their social media platforms in March and April 2012.  The Facebook account has received over 3,200 “Likes” and our Twitter account has over 470 followers.
