Get an inside look at operations of the Washington State Patrol today, courtesy of Twitter and Facebook.
WSP will present a #daywithWSP and will tweet events happening around the state in real-time.
Most people are familiar with troopers in white cars who respond to accidents and disabled vehicles, a state patrol release said. Less well-known are other state patrol employees who play key roles in keeping the public safe on the roads, at their places of business and in their homes.
"We ... want the public to see the entire depth and breadth of what they do," said Washington State Patrol Chief John R. Batiste.
Incidents or events that require more than 140 characters will first be tweeted, and then explained in more detail on the agency's Facebook page.
Nothing will be simulated, and the #daywithWSP will not be a compilation. Everything tweeted will have happened that day.
The #daywithWSP event will begin at 6 a.m. today and runs until midnight.
To participate, follow @wastatepatrol or monitor the hashtag #daywithWSP.
