Bridgeville police chief Chad King was profiled in TribLive.com’s Neighbor Spotlight column last week.
In the article, King’s discusses his previous career in carpentry, the importance of communication—in policework and life—and, of course, the Bridgeville police department’s wildly popular Facebook page, which has four time more followers than Bridgeville has residents.
“We’ve had people in traffic yell out to me and officers, ‘Hey, I love your Facebook page,'” King said. “I’ve gotten that more times than I can count. Any major crime that we’ve put on Facebook, sharing photos of the suspects, we have a 100% success rate for solving that crime.”
King said he was drawn to law enforcement as a child, after his mother was mugged at Washington Mall.
