NYPD Wants You To Do Their Job for Them

07.30.10 Bucky Turco

With all the social networking going on in the city, the NYPD is feeling left out and will kick off an advertising campaign next week, urging the public to text more tips to their Crime Stoppers website. It will also bring attention to their Twitter and YouTube accounts, even though they admit that phones tips are still the best, with one cop explaining: “If I have to rely on 140 characters, I might not get the information I need.” |NYDN|
