In an effort to join the rest of the Social Media Networking Community St. Thomas Police Service would like to announce that they are now on Facebook and Twitter. The expansion into Social Media will allow us to engage our citizens and inform them about what’s going on in our city and in our Police Department. Posting positive images of community events and safety messages will be the prime focus of these sites.
There will be a few key members of our Police Service having active accounts on Twitter. The first one being our main Twitter feed, @STPSmedia where local events, safety messages and some media releases will be displayed. Our Chief of Police, Darryl Pinnell, @ChiefPinnell, is very active on Twitter along with Inspector Chris Herridge, @InspHerridge. Trax, our newest member of the service also has his own Twitter account, @STPSTRAX, and will be sharing all of his training experiences and day to day activities. Constable Tanya Calvert, our new Community Resource Officer, @Cstcalvert will be active on Twitter and plans on engaging our high school students promoting safety and positive learning, and will be tweeting motivational/educational information and current events throughout the school year.
Facebook is the fastest growing social media network and what better way to reach thousands of people. Our Facebook page will give citizens who are not on twitter an inside look at our Police Service, messages we want to get out there and information on events within the city. Currently our page has videos on scams, photos of the ongoing construction at the station and images of Trax, our K9 officer.
