"The Toronto Police Service is dabbling in the news industry, launching a short weekday newscast as part of what it calls an ongoing effort to communicate with the public and officers alike.
"Starting Thursday, the force will broadcast a three-minute newscast to 'talk about what we do here at the Toronto police directly and unfiltered,' according to a promotional video the service released this week. The show will 'air' on YouTube and its social media networks at 10 a.m. each weekday.
Meaghan Gray, spokesperson for the Toronto police, said Wednesday that the show is a natural progression from some of the existing communication initiatives, including their website and social media accounts.
