This is even will be rescheduled for later this summer!!! It is NOT taking place on June 5th.



#PolTwt is the hashtag for the Global Police Tweet-a-thon. The fifth Global Police Tweet-a-thon is coming up on TBD. You can sign up NOW below.

#Poltwt is a twice a year event that lasts for 24 hours in each timezone. #PolTwt is the creation of LAwS Communications. The first PolTwt happened in March of 2013 connecting cops around the world and building relationships between police and the citizens they serve.

There are few rules to #PolTwt. Police departments at local, county, national or international levels can do any  one of several models and tweet for any part of the 24 hour period they like.

  1. Tweet all calls
  2. Tweet about one specific topic to educate citizens
  3. Officers tweet-the-beat

The one rule to #PolTwt is to put the hashtag in every tweet. That’s it.

As an effort to extend an invitation to citizens to have a dialog about police community relations during the fourth Global Police Tweet-a-thon, we’re suggesting a theme of Time to Unify. In addition to the #poltwt hashtag, we want to use the hashtag #TimeToUnify in tweets intended to improve the relationships between the police and specific communities, particularly communities of color.

Please see your registered email address for more information about this initiative.
