WALKER - Police will be using social media accounts to share their movements in a program the department is calling a "Virtual Ride Along."

The agency announced its plan on Facebook Friday evening. The Walker Police Department said the program would happen in the next couple of weeks.

"On a night to be selected, and primarily through the use of Twitter, we will "broadcast" 4 - 5 hours of a night shift, tweeting out the calls we receive, the type of calls received and the approximate location of the call," the department posted on Facebook. Officers will explain what is happening and update users and followers of the progress of the call, including any arrests.

The department said people who follow along will be allowed to answer questions and officers will respond.
