CPD tweet, post their way to lower violent crime rates

Homicide rates in 2017 were record breaking but according to the Columbus Police Department, overall rates of violent crime were down—they say social media is to thank.

Maybe you haven’t noticed but the CPD has really ramped up their Facebook and Twitter presences to help spread the word about at-large criminals and other information the general public should know about.

With social media, police are able to reach thousands of people who can provide tips which help solve crimes. Go ahead and give them a “Follow” or a “Like,” you never know how or when you could help cops do their jobs.
