Posted: January 16th, 2013 6:16 PM

The Salem Police Crime Prevention Unit will celebrate its one-year anniversary on the social media network, Twitter, by taking followers on a virtual patrol ride-along.

On January 18, 2012, the police department launched its efforts to communicate with Salem residents using Twitter. The department has been working to provide citizens with crime prevention information with a mix of opportunities to engage with the public through Tweetup and online chat events.

To celebrate its first year anniversary, Crime Prevention Unit staff will work with patrol staff and tweet the various activities and goings on within the community. Using the hashtag phrase "#streettweet," on January 17 followers will be able to learn more about patrol duties and calls for service.

To minimize impacts on follower timelines, staff will tweet between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m.

Follow the department online at or log onto to your Twitter account and use the search function to navigate directly to @salem_police and click the follow button.
