Minneapolis Police Department on Facebook

The strib reports Minneapolis Police Department jumps onto Facebook

The Minneapolis Police Department is looking for some fans.

That is, the department has just launched a Facebook page,following the lead of countless law enforcement agencies across the country.

These departments are scrambling, like many big institutions, to connect with people who are abandoning legacy communications media in favor of social networking sites.

“It’s just another way to reach out to people and capture the ones we’re missing — kids, college students,” said department spokesman Jesse Garcia.

You have to love the double entendre of “and capture the ones we’re missing — kids, college students”
