Beginning at 6 p.m. Saturday, July 29, residents are invited to virtually “ride along” with an officer from the Wausau Police Department in their first ever #TweetAlong event.
Until 3:30 a.m., Wausau Police Officer Luis Lopes-Serrao will patrol the city with his K-9 partner, Zander, responding to calls for service. Throughout the night, Lopes-Serrao will Tweet their progress, offering up behind the scenes photos while giving residents a unique way to learn about the daily routine of local officers.
To follow along, visit Twitter at www.twitter.com/WausauPD. For live updates, users with a Twitter account can follow the hashtag #wpdlive.
People without Twitter accounts can still follow along on the above website, but will need to periodically refresh the page for updates.
Check out this video of Zander on a hot day, posted on Twitter by the Wausau Police Department:
What a beautiful day outside. Even K-9 Zander just wants to play in the water! #teamk9 #k9unit #gsd #workhardplayhard #wiwx pic.twitter.com/wM2GDz2Mp0
