Sarasota Police to Host Tweet from the Beat on Thursday

SARASOTA, FL. – February 1, 2017   – 8 a.m.

The Sarasota Police Department is taking you on another “virtual ride-along.”  Tomorrow, Thursday, February 2, 2017, beginning at 7 a.m., Twitter users can “ride along” for another ‘Tweet from the Beat’ with traffic officers during day shift.

To join the Sarasota Police Department in the virtual ride along:  If you already have a Twitter account, follow the Sarasota Police Department under the handle @SarasotaPD.  If you aren’t on Twitter, you can go to and sign up.  It’s easy, quick and free.  Once an account is created, users can follow @SarasotaPD

Throughout the shift, Traffic Officer Jason Frank and other Patrol Officers will share what they see and do through texts, videos, GIFs and photos.  The Partnership Policing Communications Coordinator will tweet on behalf of the Officers.  People following @SarasotaPD will be able to ask questions and interact with Officers while they are on patrol.

Sarasota Police Department’s ‘Tweet from the Beat’ program started in November 2013.
