Po­lice us­ing so­cial me­dia as tool to fight crime

Dayton Daily News - - IN OUR CITIES: KETTERING -

So­cial me­dia is mak­ing the job of catch­ing those who com­mit crime just a lit­tle eas­ier. For the Ket­ter­ing Po­lice De­part­ment, so­cial me­dia has be­come a very pow­er­ful tool that al­lows in­ves­ti­ga­tors to get the word out to our most valu­able part­ners in fight­ing crime: the res­i­dents.

Ket­ter­ing wants to reach out to cit­i­zens and share in­for­ma­tion that will keep them safe or will help pro­vide po­lice with pos­si­ble leads that can help solve a crime. Re­cently, two thefts have been solved in Ket­ter­ing be­cause a cit­i­zen took the time to call in af­ter see­ing one of the po­lice’s posts on Face­book.

Res­i­dents are en­cour­aged to “like” and “fol­low” the Ket­ter­ing Po­lice De­part­ment page, as well as the of­fi­cial City of Ket­ter­ing, Ohio – Govern­ment and Ket­ter­ing Fire De­part­ment pages.
