This edition of Fact Check TV in partnership with NBC7 San Diego examines claims by Executive Assistant Police Chief David Ramirez and San Diego Unified Superintendent Bill Kowba.

Ramirez said San Diego police put crime information on Twitter, the popular social networking website, when the agency had never used its official account (@SanDiegoPD). After our Fact Check, police started tweeting. Kowba correctly described student attendance in the district last year as a five-year high.
