DUNWOODY, GA -- Police here are calling it "the Black Friday deal of the week." They''re referring to the Dunwoody PD's Twitter feed.
Dunwoody PD plans to put all of its 911 calls, large and small, on its Twitter feed Black Friday. If you follow it, don't expect gritty urban crime drama. Dunwoody sits in Atlanta's affluent suburbs. Its feed, @dunwoodypolice, is already full of examples of the minutiae of suburban police work.
"Two left NB lanes of Ashford Dunwoody Rd closed at Perimeter Center East due to water main break."
"WANTED: Unidentified black male for shoplifting Gucci merchandise..."
"#dunwoodypolice arrest shoplifter at Georgetown Kroger..."
"Well, we are metro Atlanta. And there's a lot of activity that goes on up here," said Sgt. Richard Carlson. He says auto break-ins are commonplace crimes.
