Las Vegas CBS KXNT- If you never got to ride along with the local police department when you were in school, you can do it tonight — on Twitter. Las Vegas Metro Police employees are being paired with officers in patrol cars, to give you a virtual ride-along by tweeting what they see.
“The biggest oppportunity for the community is it gives folks an opportunity to vicariously get inside a police car, and through the eyes of another individual, observe what it is our cops go through on a daily basis,” said Bill Cassell, Metro’s public information officer.
The Tweet Along lasts until 9:00 on Friday, February 15. This is the second Metro Tweet Along. Follow Metro on Twitter @LVMVP.
