Sheriff’s tweet-along

BCSO offers virtual ride-along

For those who seek excitement while sitting on the living-room couch, the Butte County Sheriff’s Office (BCSO) has offered a chance to go on a virtual ride-along with an on-patrol deputy. “The event,” according to a press release, “also referred to as a ‘tweet along,’ will give the community an idea of what a deputy’s typical shift is like.”

Sheriff’s Office media liaison Miranda Bowersox will physically ride along and tweet her adventures from 5 p.m. to midnight on Friday, Aug. 23. This marks the BCSO’s first tweet-along. “Some information, such as locations and names will be withheld for safety reasons,” the press release says. Go to to grab a virtual seat.
