After a dozen years working violent crimes as a detective, Det. Lt. Tim Cotton took on a new role at the Bangor Police Department that allowed him to pull from his other life experiences as a broadcaster and humor writer. One of his responsibilities is running the department’s Facebook page and in the span of three years, with a little help from the Duck of Justice, Cotton has grown the department’s following from 10,000 to more than 274,000 — almost nine times the population of Bangor.
