MANHATTAN, KAN. - On Friday April 26, 2013, Riley County Police Department will be conducting a Tweet Along to showcase a day in the life of one of their police officers. RCPD has participated in several of these Tweet Along events over the past several months and has received positive feedback from the community.

This event will follow Public Information Officer Matthew Droge, otherwise known as TwitterCop, on an afternoon and evening patrol shift along with one of the department’s many social media followers. Through a selection process, RCPD will find a Twitter follower to do the actual tweeting for them. Interested Twitter followers should mention @RileyCountyPD in a tweet and in less than 140 characters while using the department’s “#POH” hashtag, tell RCPD why they should be picked to tweet during the event.

Deadline to submit tweets of interest is April 12, 2013 at noon. For more information on Riley County Police Department’s social media efforts, contact PIO Matthew Droge.
