Police using social media as tool to fight crime
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.
