Christie: We’re Keeping Up w/Times

re: Liz Arakalian's Quotable Quote: "“The Coeur d'Alene Police Department just put up a fan page on Facebook. Would it be terrible to post some virtual doughnuts on it”

Christie Wood: Well … if you feel you must, please make some of them for me Maplebars. Those are my favorite. Facebook and twitter are very new to me -- as of yesterday! I have never logged on before. But I do see an opportunity to get out critical information in a hurry to the public. DFO became an instant friend, and also re-tweeted the info on the rape suspect for us. I think it is going to be a good communication tool.
Chief Longo is from the same “vintage” as me and I doubt he has a personal facebook page, but he is always supportive of new ideas and means to communicate with the public. It is great to have leadership that keeps up with the times.

Question: Do you plan to follow the Coeur d'Alene Police Department on Twitter and/or Facebook?
