APD Announces New Spanish Language Facebook Page 
The Aurora Police Department recognizes that out of the 351,200 citizens that reside in the city of Aurora, 29% represent the Hispanic community. To better serve that community they are unveiling a new Spanish language Facebook page. This new social media site will allow them to directly share information and provide a forum for people to ask the APD questions in Spanish. The page can be found at https://www.facebook.com/PoliciaDeAurora/.  

The Aurora Police Department already operates a Spanish language Twitter account which it started in 2015.  It is the only law enforcement agency in the state to have one. 

By utilizing social media the Aurora Police Department’s goal is to foster trust and a sense of community by engaging those they serve. It allows them to share information quickly that could help protect the community, catch suspects, and find missing persons. It also provides the APD with the opportunity to highlight the day-to-day operations of the department and the good work their officers and employees do on a daily basis.

The Aurora Police Department currently connects with it's residents in English via Twitter, Facebook, Periscope, Nextdoor and YouTube. The APD Recruiting Unit, K-9 Unit, Traffic Section and Police Explorer Post also have Facebook pages. The APD encourages the community to “follow” them on Twitter and “like” their Facebook pages to receive the latest news, alerts, and crime prevention information.
