Like GPD on FacebookIn an effort to enhance communications, the Gainesville Police Department now has a Facebook account.
According to Facebook 1 in every 13 people or nearly 72% of US internet users have Facebook accounts. With these staggering numbers we will be able to reach more individuals within the community. This is a way for the department to be more proactive and further enhance our community policing approach to working with those that we serve and protect.
The department will utilize the Facebook account in a number of ways. We will be able to put information out to the public in real time. It will allow for two way communications between the department and the community.
We encourage all residents to visit our page and follow us as we use technology to make our streets safer.
