The CBC is reporting on a new approach from Vancouver Police Services which will help "give people a sense of how many calls the police handle in a day".
Starting at 8 a.m. PT on Thursday, media officer Const. Anne Longley will tweet each and every call, from parking complaints to high priority calls such as in-progress violent crimes including assault or robbery, on the micro-blogging website.
Const. Longley opined that this would be a good way to "officially launch the department's Twitter account @VancouverPD with a bang".
