The Garden Grove Police Department is partying like it's 2009.
That is, the cop shop is rolling out its new Facebook page featuring the “latest headlines, along with useful services and information.”
“Like” the page, check back often and you'll be treated to “the latest and most updated stories of interest originating
from the Garden Grove Police Department” and “Police Department news releases
and coverage by major news agencies, including video and audio files,” the department promises.
Possible future additions include
local traffic conditions, street closures and other public safety alerts and
