In order to increase our ability to make public notifications, the Guilderland Police Department went online September 10th with our official Twitter account. Twitter compliments the department’s Facebook page which was created last year. Our new Twitter account is directly linked with our Facebook page which allows all Tweets to immediately appear on Facebook which enables us to reach more people at the same time.
In addition to department news and events, the Guilderland Police Department will be making notifications for traffic conditions that affect the town, such as road closures due to construction, accidents or other emergencies. We will also be using these social media outlets to seek help in finding missing persons or help in identifying persons or vehicles that may have been involved in crimes.
We would also like to make the public aware; The Guilderland Animal Shelter is also now on Facebook. The shelter, located at 6363 French’s Mill Rd. in Guilderland Center, will be posting pictures of animals that are available for adoption, in an effort to find good homes. These animals are also posted on the Town of Guilderland website under Animal Control. Those interested can “like” the Guilderland shelter Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/guilderlandanimalshelter
