“The police department will now utilize this social site to publicize events and update its citizens on activities, both criminal and non-criminal, that are occurring in the Town of Portsmouth,” the department stated in a press release issued today.
“The implementation of the Facebook page offers a new form of communication between the police department and the community. Visitors to the site will be able to post questions and comments that the department will respond to in a timely basis. The Portsmouth Police Facebook page is not intended to be used as a reporting method of emergencies. Emergencies should continue to be reported by dialing 9-1-1.”
