Southwest Detective Joseph Murray (a.k.a. TheFuzz9143 on Twitter) has been awaiting approval for Social Media use from Philadelphia Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey since January 11, 2012. For years, Detective Murray's Twitter account has provided invaluable crime and safety updates for the West Philadelphia area. His tweets allow the community to follow crime trends in the neighborhood and also receive notification when perpetrators are apprehended. Detective Murray's use of Twitter is exactly the kind of useful and positive police-community interaction that the Philadelphia Police Department should encourage, not silence. Please approve his Social Media use under his official title immediately so that his updates to our community may resume. Thank you.
