Event Information

Type of Event K.P.D. Starts a New Online Blog
Date of Release August 26, 2013

General Narrative

The Kingsport Police Department has started a new online blog.

The Kingsport Police Department has completely embraced social media and started a new blog. This blog serves as a central hub to access the department’s Website, YouTube Channel, FaceBook Page, Twitter Account, and R.S.S. Feed. All K.P.D. e-Press Releases are being instantly posted to this blog, which in turn forwards the releases out to other social media sites.

K.P.D. invites citizens to visit www.KingsportPDBlog.com. Once there, individuals are encouraged to enter their e-mail address and begin following the department’s blog.

Following the Kingsport Police Department’s blog will enable citizens to keep up with current activity and events relating to the department, as well as help them to be better informed in emergency situations.

The Kingsport Police Department realizes that a significant segment of the population looks almost exclusively to social media as their primary source of information. In order for the department to be able to reach these individuals, starting this blog is an obvious step in the right direction.
