ST. PETERS POLICE DEPARTMENT IS NOW ON TWITTER
St. Peters, Mo, September 11, 2014– The St. Peters Police Department is now on Twitter (@StPetersMOPD). Our department is excited about using this new forum to continue connecting with the residents, business owners and those visiting the St. Peters area. We will still be using the city website and the Police Department Neighborhood e-mail list to put out information. Twitter will be an added format to put out information immediately.
St. Peters Police Department plans on using Twitter to notify the community of the following:
• Road closures due to accidents, flooding or other hazardous situations
• Criminal activity alerts/warnings
• Police programs such as Citizen Police Academy, Prescription Drug Take Back events, National Night Out, Police Explorers, etc.
• Safety tips and reminders
• Press Releases
Our department will not be replying to tweets, instead we encourage those who have any questions to contact to contact the administrator of the Twitter account at firstname.lastname@example.org or 636-278-2244 ext. 3550. The account will not be monitored 24 hours a day; any emergencies should still go through 911 and non-emergencies at 636-278-2222.
