Best Social Media Practices for Law Enforcement Departments and Their Personnel
Social Media Methods for Law Enforcement™ is designed to help personnel and their departments utilize social media effectively to managing their online presence.
Facebook, YouTube and twitter are powerful social mediums. But few law enforcement agencies are effectively leveraging these sites for the benefit of their departments and communities. This course helps agencies positively impact and engage their communities through the generation of their own managed social media presence.
Social media sites are also rich in criminal activity. Criminal intelligence gathering and online investigations may be the other side of the coin, but few personnel have been trained in the actual use of these websites. This course helps personnel use social media sites; a prerequisite for any online investigation.
Nationally, many officers have been administratively disciplined (or fired) due to their activity on social media sites. Many departments have enacting strong policies regarding online officer behavior. This course provides best practices (both professional and personal) for online behavior.
