LONGVIEW - Longview Police are hopping on the "Twitter" band-wagon to help notify the public during emergencies and non emergencies.
They now have a twitter page that will have updated wrecks, road closures and major crimes.
Officers say, in a time of need this makes it easier to get "the word out" to the public faster.
If you subscribe, the twitter notices can be sent straight to your phone.
Officer Kevin Brownlee said, "Our dispatch is helping us keep the twitter updated when theres accidents or late breaking accidents in the evenings and late night its always gonna be updated with real-time info from dispatch and what's going on."
Longview PD's twitter page is availible to anyone who subscribes.
