Police hope to use social media to help keep the peace in what can sometimes be a rowdy weekend in Fredonia.

Fred Fest is no longer a sanctioned activity at Fredonia State College, but many off campus parties still take place during the weekend that it would normally have taken place.

Here's a statement we received from the police department this afternoon:

"The Fredonia Police Department wants to make the community aware that officers are now wearing body cameras to assist in documenting the events as they are occurring and we will be posting all arrests on our FACEBOOK page for public viewing."

Meyers tells Seven Eyewitness News that Mug shots and descriptions of charges will be posted on any misdemeanor or felony charges.

In addition, judges are going to hold court throughout the evening and into the night so that all subjects arrested can be arraigned and subsequently held for bail.

If you are intending to attend a social event in the Village of Fredonia this weekend, we encourage you to obey the law.

It would be unfortunate for future employers to see your arrest on social media."
