EPD live tweets from patrol car

EUREKA- North Coast residents have the chance to see what Eureka Police Officers do day in and day out through social media.

Friday was the Eureka Police Department’s first Tweet Along, where Public Information Officer Brittany Powell live tweeted from the passenger seat of a patrol car on a regular 10-hour daytime shift.  The purpose is to provide people with an understanding of what an officer does on patrol, what kinds of calls officers respond to and how those are handled.  Friday was a trial run and more Tweet Alongs could be held in the future.  You can follow Tweet Alongs by following the EPD on twitter at or you can search #InsideEPD.  Highlights from Friday will also be shared on the Eureka Police Department’s Facebook page.
