Local Police Presence on Social Media

Med PD Police FBMEDFORD, Ore. — Medford Police are increasing their presence on the Internet.

They are now on Facebook and Twitter. Officials say this is something they have been looking into doing for quite some time.

They hope it will help get a quicker response in cases they are working on. It started this week, and they are already up to over 1,000 likes.

Chief Tim George says there have already been more calls than usual because of posting information to these networks.
