CPD ends Facebook posts

-A A +A

By Suzette Cook, Reporter

The Chiefland Police Department posted its last Facebook entry on Aug. 12 at 10 a.m. stating that the cost and maintenance of public records archives of the social media accounts is not in its budget.

According to Florida Statute Chapter 119, “It is the policy of this state that all state, county, and municipal records are open for personal inspection and copying by any person. Providing access to public records is a duty of each agency.”

The final post stated, “Good day everyone. Unfortunately this will be the Chiefland Police Departments last Facebook post. We would love to continue to give you guys immediate information and share pictures and keep an open door to our department but due to unforeseen circumstances with the cost of the maintenance of public records archiving, we can no longer afford to use social media. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. We wish everyone a safe and prosperous year and thank for your continuous support!”
