Crimestoppers now on Facebook, Twitter
Crawford County CrimeStoppers has added social media to its efforts.

The group launched Facebook and Twitter pages to expand its online presence, said board member David Marqua.

Marqua said he is impressed with the reception of the new effort. This morning there were more than 200 followers of the Facebook page, which launched Tuesday.

The group already uses a website and advertising in local media, including the Daily News.

Marqua said they were encouraged by the Effingham Area CrimeStoppers, which credits its social media presence with increased investigative help.

The Effingham CrimeStoppers page has 2,739 friends and was launched Jan. 14.

To get to either page, you will need a Facebook or Twitter account. In the Facebook search field, type in "Crawford County Crimestoppers." Then, you may "like" the page.

Once you have done so, mouse over the "Liked" button and select "Get Notifications" if you would like to have updates automatically posted to your news feed.

In Twitter, type "Crawford County Crimestoppers" into the search field. Then you may "follow" the Twitter feed, called "CCCrimestopper1."
