I'm glad PAPD is doing this again. The last "ride along" in November was interesting and fun. Even if you don't want to create a Twitter account and follow them, you can read their posts online at: Web Link

PAPD often puts links to their press releases on Twitter. So, if you're a news junkie, you can often get latest before it appears on Palo Alto Online.

PAFD is also on twitter @PaloAltoFire or online at : Web Link
