76th Precinct Reaches Out Via Email


We got an email yesterday alerting us to an accident in Carroll Park involving a collapsed branch that caused minor injuries to one man. But what was interesting about the email was not so much the content (which you can read about here) as whom it was from—the 76th Precinct! This is certainly the first time anything like this has landed in our inbox, though it turns out that the 76th has been doing this for a few months, starting with emails gathered at community meetings and gradually adding relevant blogs to the list. We think this is a great move on the precinct's part—both in terms of information dissemination as well as the p.r. boost it gets from appearing to be trying to connect with residents. We applaud this effort but we've got one word for them—Twitter!
