Toledo police takes citizens along for the ride with 'Tweet-A-Long'

TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - Toledo Police experimented with social media to connect with the people they protect and serve.

Police are holding what call "Tweet-A-Long" on Twitter, using the hashtag #ToledoPolice.

One police crew tweeted out what they do during the course of their Thursday afternoon shift.

The 'Tweet-A-Long' worked as a play-by-play of their day-to-day job.

Among the calls, the officers responded to complaints about someone burning leaves in their yard, a driver stalled on the road and a foot pursuit.

While between calls, the officers also answered questions from the public.

"We'll see how this one goes. Did one a few years back and that seemed to go well. We're just trying it again," Sgt. Kevin Toney said. "If people like it we'll evaluate it for the next time."
