One local police department is joining another social media outlet. Anniston Police Department now has a Snapchat account. The department joined Facebook and Twitter in 2010. The APD currently has more than 30,000 followers on Facebook. Anniston Police Captain Nick Bowles says it’s a great way to connect with the public.
Bowles says he enjoys going around the station and taking candide photos of officers and agents. The Snapchat will consist of not only fun pictures but information of road closures or emergency situations.
