Evesham Police hosts 'virtual ride-along' on social media

The Evesham Police Department invites our social media followers to ride along throughout the year as Chief Chew uses social media to give our community a glimpse of what Evesham Police Officers experience during a normal patrol shift. The dates and times of the Virtual Ride Alongs are announced prior to each event.

The ETPD virtual ride-along will follow calls during the evening shift, tweeting information about the calls for service, along with pictures and videos of the officers at work. Our social media followers will be able to follow the officers in real time as if they were in the front seat of the patrol car.

Through the use of the virtual ride along program, the Evesham Police Department hopes to enhance public transparency and to continue to build partnerships with our community. The program will also provide an inside view of the officers who serve the Evesham community each and every day.

The Evesham Police Department is active on social media, with more than 24,000 "likes" on Facebook and more than 2500 Twitter followers.
