This year, the KCPD moved Cops into the 21st century. The department's PR team began holding regular tweet-along nights with officers on patrol to show residents what a night on the beat is like. The subjects of the @KCPolice tweets run from the humorous to the dangerous. For example: "Suspected john said he was just giving her [suspected prostitute] a ride. Female now says she's not working 'tonight.' #kctweetalong," read a tweet from an August ride-along. Another charming example: "Dispute in 2500 block of Drury. Original call was person armed with a knife. Suspect is on something. He's convinced guy on bicycle he fought with is the police. Now he's showing us how he can do pushups." Official tweeting doesn't get any better than this.
