Update: Capt. Michael Parker of the Sheriff's Headquarters Bureau said that individual stations like will eventually have the option of starting their own individual pages in Facebook.
He said there is no time line on introducing the individualized pages.
He also noted that right now users cannot leave comments on the station's Facebook page but they may be able to at a later time.
Another way to receive information from the department is through its Nixle system, which provides email and text message updates on crimes, rewards, and other information for county residents.
The pages are run by the department's central bureau and are not specific to La Cañada Flintridge.
Over in Altadena, also patrolled by the Sheriff's Department, setting up a Facebook page was a clearly identified goal of Altadena Sheriff's Department Capt. Steve McLean. It was this year.
McLean said at that meeting that the department actually briefly started its own Facebook page, but was asked by the department command to take it down in anticipation of the establishment of the countywide department page.
This post has been updated to identify the bureau responsible for the Facebook updates as the Sheriff's Headquarter Bureau.
