Register now for #Poltwt number 6!



#PolTwt is the hashtag for the Global Police Tweet-a-thon. The fifth Global Police Tweet-a-thon is coming up on September 30th. You can sign up NOW below.

#Poltwt 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 aren’t many “rules” for #PolTwt. Police departments at local, county, national or international levels can do any  one of several models and tweet for any part or all 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.
