Facebook aids Henry County Police in solving crimes


  The Henry County Police Department is charged with keeping law and order in a county that has grown exponentially in the last decade and officials are quick to utilize nearly every tool available to them to solve cases and make the county safe for residents.

  With the launch of a Facebook page a little more than a year ago, police are finding that it has been a helpful tool in gathering information on active cases.

  Sergeant Joey Smith with the Internal Affairs Division said that in recent months, Facebook identifications have helped to solve at least eight cases that were put on the site as B.O.L.Os (Be On the Look Out).

  “Social Media has been very helpful. It is a tool that we utilize and the public has the opportunity to get involved with crime and concerns in our community,” said Smith.  “Assistance from the public is crucial when investigating and dealing with crime, and we want constant communication between the public and law enforcement.”

  With nearly 5,000 likes, the HCPD also utilizes the social networking site to announce positive news in the department and citizens are encouraged to friend the Henry County Police Department on Facebook to keep up the latest news.
