Spend a day online with the state patrol Aug. 29
August 27, 2013
Get an inside look at operations of the Washington State Patrol Aug. 29, courtesy of Twitter and Facebook. The WSP will tweet events that happen around the state in real time via #daywithWSP.
While the public may recognize the troopers in white cars who respond to collisions and disabled vehicles, they may not know the WSP employees who work behind the scenes to keep the public safe on the roads, at work and at home.
By following the tag, anyone can see the depth and breadth of WSP employees’ work. This presents a great opportunity for the public, and may have special value for those contemplating a change of employment.
The WSP will first address incidents or events that require more than 140 characters, and then explain them in more detail on the agency’s Facebook site. Nothing will be simulated, and the #daywithWSP will not be a compilation. Everything tweeted will have happened that day.
The event goes from 6 a.m. to midnight Aug. 29. Follow @wastatepatrol, find WSP on Facebook at www.facebook.com/WashingtonStatePatrol or monitor the hashtag #daywithWSP on Twitter.
