WICHITA, Kan. (AP) -- The Wichita Police Department is creating Facebook page its patrol bureaus.

The Wichita Eagle (http://is.gd/lIttvx ) reports that police are using social media to better connect with neighborhoods.

The first police bureau Facebook site has been active about three months. Lt. Doug Nolte says a second one went active at the end of August and two others are still being developed.

The pages include information about traffic issues, crime trends and neighborhood meeting dates. Nolte says their content will evolve as needs dictate, and the goal is for them to become "a real-time police blotter."
