The Philadelphia Police Department's Pinterest page went live yesterday, but you won't find officers' dreams of more fashion-forward uniforms or their favorite Frank Drebin quotes pinned up there.
According to police spokesman Cpl. Frank Domizio, the Pinterest page is a way for the department to further engage the community in solving crimes.
"This is very visual and I know that visual things are successful on the Internet," Domizio said. "When we switched out Facebook page to primarily photos with links, more people looked at what we posted. That's the goal here."
The department has nine boards on its Pinterest site - six for each of the detective divisions - and three others called "Inside the PPD," "Safety and Prevention" and "Cops in the Community." Photos of wanted or apprehended suspects will appear on the detective division boards while good news about the police department and crime prevention tips will appear on the other three.
