Mendota using Facebook to find bad guys and girls

Posted by wlpo on July 28, 2016

Do you follow your town’s police and fire departments on Facebook? If you live in Mendota, you’ve probably seen the “Wanted” pictures posted by the department.

The department started posting the pictures as a way to help catch criminals in the city, and according to Mendota Police Chief Tom Smith, it’s been effective. However, the department has had to stop posting the pictures in recent weeks.

Smith says the department plans continue putting pictures up in the future, but for right now they’ve just been too busy. On a positive note, Smith also said there isn’t really a “top person” wanted by the department; although he said there are always people they’re looking for.
