MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

The Moultrie Police Department continues to strengthen its relationship with the community, one Facebook like at a time. 

Every month, the department plans to partner with a local business to promote the police's Facebook page. 

This month, every time a Facebook user likes and shares the page, they are entered to win a Back the Blue t-shirt from the Mary Mack boutique. 

"The department said social media is a great way to connect with residents. 

It benefits the police department because we have that traffic coming to our page," said Administrative Coordinator Melinda Lee, "and also the traffic is going into those businesses, which they are happy to have as well."

The winner will be announced Monday, February 29th.
