The online social networking site Facebook continues to be a big asset to the Altoona Police Department.
Earlier this month department officers were able to quickly apprehend a Megan’s Law Violator, a missing and endangered adult, a missing and endangered child and a runaway teenager all within hours of the online post announcing their disappearances.
Chief Janice Freehling says Facebook gives the community an opportunity to play a role in the department’s policing efforts by providing tips and timely information about incidents. Freehling says in some cases, it was the offender’s own family who gave up their whereabouts.
The APD Facebook page has more than 15,000 active followers.
