Connecting with the Community: Greenwood Police Department Joins Social Media

The Greenwood Police Department now has a way for citizens to interact with police through social media. The department has just launched their official Facebook and Twitter pages this week. According to Officer Jonathan Link, this was a move that department has wanted to implement for quite some time.

Officer Link is one of a group of people who will manage the accounts. He hopes that it will help citizens feel more ownership of their local law enforcement. He stated, “It is critical for law enforcement to find additional ways to engage the public. We want to form relationships outside of having to enforce the law.” The department hopes to use these social media outlets to keep citizens informed on breaking events, and to engage the public about upcoming events and other news.

The department can be found on Facebook and Twitter.

Users will be able to like and follow the department and receive news updates, road closures, and other critical information. Facebook users will be able to submit private messages to the department should they have questions or comments. Link wants residents to remember that the pages will not be “staffed” 24 hours per day; any emergency that needs law enforcement attention should always be reported through 9-1-1 for an immediate response. To maintain a family-friendly environment, all users should refer to the City of Greenwood’s Social Media Policy for guidelines. That policy can be found at
