The Lawrence Police Department has gained a large following on Twitter by taking an unusual approach.
Many of the tweets from LPD take a comical approach to telling what is going on in the city.
Whether it’s joking about National Donut Day or hosting a tweet-along day, public affairs officer Drew Fennelly, who runs the account, says that this is a great way to connect with Lawrence citizens.
“I had seen other departments do it on Twitter, so I knew that it could be affective and I realized that that was going to be the best way for us to reach a wider audience in Lawrence,” Fennelly said.
