A Day on Patrol with Your Local Sheriff’s Deputies. Altadena Station Sheriff’s to Participate in Global Tweet-a-thon.What’s it like to patrol the streets of Altadena on a Friday morning and afternoon? What type of calls do Altadena Sheriff’s Deputies respond to? In an effort to give Altadena residents a glimpse inside the way deputies work to keep our community safe, the Altadena Sheriff’s Station will participate in the Global Police Tweet-a-thon on Friday, March 22nd, 2013 between 10:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m.(Virtual ride-along).

Deputies from the Altadena Sheriff’s Station will join more than 100 participating law enforcement agencies across six countries to take to Twitter in an effort to bring attention and understanding to the use of social media by law enforcement.

Agencies will tweet using the same hashtag, #poltwt, to create awareness about police work and issues police face, as well as to promote the use of social media and transparency in law enforcement.

"We are excited to bring together police agencies around the world in this first of its kind social media event," said Lauri Stevens, founder of LAwS Communications and organizer of the Global Police Tweet-a-thon. "We hope it sends the message to non-law enforcement that their police officers are up to speed with social media and that they should use the channel to talk with police officers and to be stewards of public safety."

There are currently more than 100 agencies participating from the U.S., Canada, UK, Sweden, Iceland, and Australia. Any law enforcement agency can join the Tweet-a-thon and tweet any portion of the 24-hour period. For a list of participating agencies, please visit
