UTPD hoping to raise awareness with Tweet-Along

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - You have a chance to ride along with the UT police Thursday and Friday.

The department is hosting a Tweet-Along on its official Twitter account to show the campus community a day in the life of its officers.

Officers will ride along with shift officers from 8:00 a.m. Thursday until 8:00 a.m. Friday and will share on Twitter calls for service and officer-initiated activity that occur.

Three officers will share Tweet-Along duties for the twenty-four-hour period: Sergeant Cedric Roach, Corporal Kelly Mihalik, and Officer Lindsey Miller. The officers will share the day’s activities only after a scene or incident has been cleared.

Many students say it makes them feel safe.

Follow the Tweet-Along on UTPD’s Twitter account by following @UTPolice, or by following the hashtag #UTPDbeat
