Rock Island PD Launches Facebook Page

Posted: Updated:


Rock Island police have a new tool to help them communicate with the public: A Facebook page. The department announced it launched it's own page this week.     
Police say its an invaluable tool for them and almost instantly lets them get information out to the public, whether it's a traffic situation, a missing person or to help solve crimes.

"Even in our very first post we put a picture of a retail theft suspect, we couldn't identify within hours that suspect was identified by the public," Rock Island Lt. Tim McCloud said.

Police say this also helps them connect with the community, letting people know about crime prevention tips or community policing projects.
