Union County Prosecutor’s Office Launches Twitter Account


In an effort to better connect and engage with the local public and news media, the Union County Prosecutor’s Office today is launching an official Twitter account, acting Union County Prosecutor Grace H. Park announced Monday.

The account, @UCPONJ, is live now, and will be managed by Prosecutor’s Office Director of Communications Mark Spivey.

“Transparency and accountability are two ideals I have strived to make hallmarks of my administration, and being active on social media is a great way to provide both,” Park said. “We believe that taking this step will offer an unprecedented insider’s look at who we are and what we do on behalf of the public we serve.”

Using the hashtag #gettoknowUCPO, there will also be periodic posts highlighting individual staff members and the roles they serve for the Office. Basic background information about new investigations into certain breaking criminal matters will also be shared on Twitter prior to a press release with more detailed information being posted later on.
