Awesome use of social media – Manchester Police Department

This is a cool story. In order to show the public why budget cuts shouldn’t occur, the Manchester Police Department is tweeting every incident that happens over a 24 hour period.

I would think this helps create goodwill among the public, educates the public on the sheer volume of calls/how to use emergency services properly, brings awareness to the budgetary issues, and sets the stage for media/public backlash if the budget cuts DO occur.
