Best of Peoria

Never taking its online self too seriously, the Washington, Illinois Police Department delivers timely information and advice through humor and virtual hugs on its social media platforms.

From “arresting” a pack of ferocious kittens at Five Points (nicknamed the “Five Points Five”) to cheeky reminders about the rules for burning landscape waste (“You may not allow your fire to smolder. You may allow your love to smolder… While you are spreading your love, we’ll think of a post to point you and other Washingtonians lovingly toward approved landscape burning practices this fall.”), their viral sentiments are always appreciated by the community.
