The Utica Police Department Confirms That It Is Moving To Google+ Platform

City of Utica Police Department Google+ page

WIBX learned this morning that the Utica Police Department might be moving its public information page from Facebook to Google+, and the department is now confirming that transition is official.

In a written statement Sergeant Steve Hauck said, “For the past three years we experienced great success with our Facebook page, and enjoyed a following of 25,000 fans.  Facebook however, did come with its shortcomings.  The inability to control commentary on our page created division within the community and took the focus away from informing the public, and placed it on the back and forth commentary. This new platform will give us the ability to enable and disable commentary on individual posts. We will continue to provide current and informative information to our followers and look forward to this new and exciting platform.”

The page is live.  For a link click here.
