Police in LP plug into social media

The Lake Placid Police Department is now on Facebook.

Users of the immensely popular social media site can now add the police department to their list of favorite pages.

Officials with the law enforcement agency say they plan to use Facebook to alert residents and visitors alike to "events, changing traffic patterns and press releases."

The department also plans on posting information pertaining to local law enforcement statistics and legal notices.

Last year, the Saranac Lake Police Department logged on to Facebook as well, where officers post arrests and information about road conditions. That page now has nearly 650 fans.

The Lake Placid Police Department's Facebook page has over 200 followers so far.
