NYPD precincts around the city are gradually going social, joining Twitter to keep residents informed. (Or, from the cynic’s perspective, for damage control and stalking) Better late than never. Now some are taking it a step further.
Just have a look at the 5th Precinct, which recently started outfitting its fleet with decals spelling out the contact detail. “We’ve gone mobile,” they announced on Twitter. The familiar blue bird logo and official handle are pasted on the trunk.
We haven’t seen these in the wild yet, though. And the 7th Precinct doesn’t appear to be following suit, either.
