[Brief] Why the police should use social media


Just a brief post to push for increased use of social media by UK police forces. There has been some great work by individuals (check out @hotelalpha9 and @Citycyclecop on Twitter for example) and forces (West Midlands Police have recently made a real push for social media, as well as use of their website to improve engagement with the public).

I strongly believe that the way we communicate with people needs to change, and whilst social media isn’t the whole answer, nor is it perfect, it cannot be ignored.

For those who are interested, my Prezi for use of social media in policing is available here
