Columbia County - The Bloomsburg Police Department, 301 E. 2nd Street Bloomsburg, PA 17815 has transformed its communications methods by recently implementing "Twitter" to disseminate important Public Safety information to the public. The newest form of Public Relations offers a fast direct line of communication between the community and the police department. Keeping the public informed is critical in preventing and solving crimes. The public continues to support policing efforts and serve as the eyes and ears of the community when law enforcement cannot be everywhere at all times. A better informed community is a safer community. This low - cost tool using Twitter was implemented last week through the assistance of two Bloomsburg University interns . To access the Twitter account, follow BloomsburgPD or visit the police department website at www.bloompd.com.
