The NYPD has formed a new social-media unit of officers assigned to sniff out troublemakers and criminal behavior on Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace.
One of the department's online and gang gurus, Assistant Commissioner Kevin O'Connor, has been put in charge of the new juvenile justice unit that will operate under the Community Affairs Bureau.
Investigators will seek out information related to gang bragging, plans for wild house parties, and other potential mayhem.
