SPD officer Heather Conway will be tweeting as she patrols the CD today starting at 11:30 a.m. The “tweetalong” is an attempt by the department to give people an idea of what goes on in an officer’s typical patrol day.
Ever wanted to go on a police ride along but never had the time? Curious as to what a day in the life of a Seattle Police patrol officer looks like? Now you can – virtually.
Join us on January 31st for Tweetalong Tuesday. Follow East Precinct patrol officer Heather Conway as she goes about a typical day patrolling the Central District, Madrona and Leschi areas.
Police responses will be summarized in easily digestible bites of 140 characters or less. Pictures will be included as appropriate. Learn more about Officer Conway and follow her shift Tuesday from 11:30 am- 8:30 pm by following @SeattlePD on Twitter.
Officers have done “tweetalongs” on Capitol Hill previously (see past coverage at our sister site Capitol Hill Seattle). Of course, we’ll be following along at @CDNews and will post any highlights here.
Who is who in the blogger picture?

I appreciate your engagement. Would love to have you tweet again. Would like more blow by blow regarding what you see. Like ‘saw a weirdo, turned around for another look. Turns out it was just “Eyes” headed out for his car.’ Or: “Saw a metal theif headed to the Recycle Depot – wish I could figure out where the crime was comitted. Or: “saw a dirt bag lurking around 23rd and Dearborn – he scuttled off eastbound when I approached.” Will cruise the streets for a bit longer.”
