If you follow the Washington State Patrol (WSP) on Twitter you’ve probably noticed that each of district public information officer (PIO) has their own account. We’ve been getting a lot of questions lately from people unsure of which PIO they should follow, so we’re here with your answer!
The WSP breaks up Washington State into eight districts. Each district has their own PIO who runs a Twitter account to keep citizens in that area informed, as well as provide safety messages/tips. All you have to do is use our handy map below to determine which district you live in, then go follow that account on Twitter (or all the district accounts if you really want too)!
Now that you know which Twitter account to follow, let us introduce you to the PIOs themselves.
