In every police department, we have an officer who's known as the PIO, or Public Information Officer. It's his or her job to give the public the information that they need or want about the department.
Well, as it turns out, my department has a Facebook page. In it, you'll see all kinds of things about the activities of the department, and all the stuff that the PIO puts out is on the Facebook page. There's not many photos, but there is a lot of information about ongoing vandalism, requests for community assistance, a tip line, and success stories. It's pretty good reading if you like local law enforcement news.
PawPaw doesn't have a lot to blog about today, so if you're bored, go over to the Rapides Parish Sheriff's Office facebook page and look around. Some of it is pretty interesting, and my kudos to the PIO and his tech guys for putting it together.
