TOLEDO, OH (Toledo News Now) -

If you've ever wondered what a day in the life of a Toledo Police officer is like, you can find out on Friday.

TPD will have a sergeant ride along with one of their officers on Friday from 2:30-10:30 p.m. That sergeant will use Twitter to share with the public the kinds of stops they make. He'll also take time to respond to questions from others on Twitter.

The department has had a lot of success using social media to communicate with the public, and they say this is just one more way to interact.

"The goal of it is to make it an interactive experience with the public," said Sgt. Joe Heffernan. "And try to make them appreciate and see what we do during the course of our day."
