State Police Start Warrant Wednesday

     NEW YORK STATE (WENY) -- New York State Police have launched a new social media strategy to get wanted people behind bars.  It's called 'Warrant Wednesday', and it officially started February 5.

     Each week wanted posters will be added to the state police Facebook page featuring the names and profiles of people with arrest or bench warrants.  State police say they need the public's help with sharing the postings each week.

     People should not post tips directly on the Facebook page.  Call the phone numbers listed on each poster.  To see the Facebook page, vist:!/nyspolice
