Someone will probably try to get a new flat-screen television without paying for it. Someone else will get so fed up with a visiting relative that punches will fly. Another person will get behind the wheel after drinking too much with the turkey dinner.
These will likely be just some of the calls police deal with on Black Friday. And this year, the Dunwoody Police Department plans to tell you about all of it. The department plans to use social media to Tweet every emergency call it receives.
Its our way of interacting and engaging the public and letting them know what we deal with on a daily basis, Officer Tim Fecht told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Those jokes about officers sitting around eating doughnuts? Its just not true, especially on the day after Thanksgiving.
Hes not eating, hes doing paperwork because weve had 16 accidents on 285 today, Fecht said.
Fecht said the department tweeted its calls for 24 hours in April 2011 and got a positive response from the community. This time, Fecht estimates officers could respond to 150 emergency calls on Black Friday.
