On January 14, the Abilene Police Department (APD) created a Twitter account.
Using Twitter should help broaden the scope of the Department’s communication abilities with the citizens of Abilene and those interested in APD. The Department’s Twitter handle is @abilenepd.
The Police Department hopes to provide timely information on accidents that block major roadways, street conditions that affect motorists, specific crime trends that have not been resolved and other information that the community needs to make informed decisions.
Chief Stan Standridge challenges the community to respond with 250 followers by midnight, January 16.
