TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - The Terre Haute Police Department has partnered with Facebook to increase safety and awareness in the community.
It's called 'Local Alerts.'
It enables authorities to provide the community with time-sensitive, necessary information.
The posts will be marked as local alerts when they contain information that police believe people need to know in order to stay safe...or just plan their day.
