Milton police now posting arrests on Facebook, Twitter

MILTON, Ga. -- The Milton Police Department has begun posting arrests on the city's social media accounts.

These posts do not contain suspects' names, ages or addresses. They are merely records of charges and gender that, in accordance with state and federal law, imply no guilt.

This free service is administered by Milton Police Chief Deborah Harrell, who decided to begin making the arrests viral after several meetings with citizens.

"Our residents like to know what their police agency is doing every day, and this simple free service is the most direct way we can keep in touch with them," she said.

In addition, residents can keep up to date with reported incidents in their areas with the Crime Reports system from the city's website.
