The Martinsburg Police department has awarded Patrolman Sam McGovern its Officer of the Month award for March 2016 for his initiative, skill, and professional excellence in developing and implementing Martinsburg Police Department’s new website and social media programs.
The new social media pages have helped to positively impact the relationship between the Police Department and the city’s residents, according to a news release.
More than 34,000 people have “Liked” the Martinsburg Police Department’s Facebook page since its January launch. Chief Maury Richards says the quality of the Martinsburg P.D. website is “world-class,” equaling or surpassing those of much larger police departments declaring, “We’ll put MPD’s website up against any other police department in the country.”
