DENVER: It opens with a warning: This video contains footage from real police body cameras.There's nothing wrong with police communicating through social media, open government advocates said.Police have made use of social media for years, from viral videos of officers' dance-offs with kids to the Boston Police Department's extensive use of Twitter following the 2013 marathon bombing.Sheriff Howard Sills leads rural Georgia's Putnam County agency, which has no full-time communications staff.Sills provided no social media updates and instead held regular news conferences on the case.
