RxPatrol is a program that keeps track of all the pharmacy crimes that take place throughout the U.S. As soon as a crime becomes known to RxPatrol, it issues an update to the law enforcement agencies so that they could look into the matter. Now, the program is coming to Twitter through the handle @RxPATROL.
Earlier, if someone wished to stay up-to-date with RxPatrol’s notices, one needed to become a registered member of the program. However, it no longer has to be the case. People can simply follow the aforementioned handle on Twitter and will be informed of all the updates from RxPatrol.
According to the Program Analyst at RxPatrol, “Pharmacy crime is a problem in many communities. RxPATROL is using new communication vehicles to help pharmacy staff and law enforcement fight pharmacy crime.”
RxPatrol’s efforts are unique in that it keeps close tabs on pharmacy robberies and burglaries. It issues the exact location of the incident, the nature of the crime as well as the number of description of the suspects. This immensely helps the law-enforcement agencies in curbing such crimes and apprehend the involved suspects.
If you use Twitter’s app on a smartphone, it essentially means that you can now get RxPatrol updates right on your smartphone, on the go. Especially if you are somehow engaged with the pharmaceutical industry, following RxPatrol’s tweets can be very useful for you.
