The Bedford Police Department has joined the world of social media.
After putting its foot in the social water last year through the Web site Nixle.com, the BPD has jumped in head first by publishing its own Facebook page.
And people are responding.
In less than 24 hours after signing on, 200 people had joined the department’s Facebook page. Within a week, that had gone over 250. And in that week, close to 1,000 people had visited the page.
