Sarnia Police Hosting Canada Day “Tweet-a-Thon”

Written by Constable Heather Emmons on June 26th, 2012

Sarnia Police will be having a “Tweet-a-Thon” on Canada Day. The police will be “tweeting” each and every call they respond to and each incident they locate.  This will start at 6 PM when the venues commence in Centennial Park.

Sarnia Police Twitter account is @SarniaPolice.  Sarnia Police have over 1,300 followers and hope to increase that number by having this event.  The Sarnia Police Twitter account has been operating for about one year and they have posted over 670 Tweets.  

When a media release is issued, it is posted on their website at SarniaPolice.com.  It then automatically attaches to their Face Book page and their Twitter account.   

Sarnia Police expect a successful Canada Day and officers will be out on foot and bike patrols.  Two officers will also be positioned at the MacDonald’s on North Christina Street.  A zero tolerance approach will be taken to anyone violating the laws and preventing attendees from enjoying all the festivities. 

If you are taking your vehicle, police remind you to lock it and keep valuables out of sight.
