Honesty is the best policy...If you're going to give a one star rating make sure you're telling the truth.

A great way to stay on top of upcoming events and creating content that your community will benefit from is by using a "Content Calendar."

Here is one that has been designed specifically with Law Enforcement in mind and it's FREE!!!!!

 http://bit.ly/2016LESMContentCalendar

Why a content calendar?

1) Content Sharing Requires Strategy
Content sharing itself should be strategic. It’s all about understanding what you community wants and giving it to them where they are and when it's relevant. A content calendar is a place where we can see and plan in big picture views.

2) It Will Make You More Consistent and Prepared
There is something powerful that happens when we plan and prepare. Our plans become tangible and everyone will be more likely to stick with the plan as we go along. The content calendar will give our team accountability and lay out what is coming up, what has been done and where we are going to publish our content.

3) Your Community and Your Agency Will Thank You
There is a good chance that we could all benefit from better communication. Many agencies use such a wide variety of tools that they often have a hard time staying on the same page. A good content calendar will bring them to a single place to see and their plans, know where we are and keep looking at completing our goals.

4) Your Audience Will Love It
One of the easiest ways to please your audience is to give them something that they’ll love in a timely and relevant manner. Better content that is more focused on what they need is always welcome, and they will appreciate our your efforts.

Download your free 2016 Law Enforcement Social Media Content Calendar now.
This is the best content calendar for your Law Enforcement Social Media Toolbox. Social interaction, team sharing, target audience descriptions...all here for your ease of use in a convenient spreadsheet.

Social media for law enforcement trainer, consultant and strategist.
Introduction
I have the best wife in the world who has given me three amazing children! I love my career.  

I believe that social hand outs should never be given, but hands up should always be extended. The more people think together, the more answers can be found and new ideas created.

Knowledge is knowing that tomatoes are a fruit...wisdom is knowing not to use them in a fruit salad.

I spent 25 years as a sworn police officer working within in all areas of uniform response and several detective positions.

Created a communications office for one of the most specialized areas in policing to raise awareness and educate the public.

Established social media for policing as a normal function for policing.

Train, consult, manage and advise police, law enforcement, government and non-profits on the best practices for social media and digital media strategies.

Bragging rights
Bragging is for people who are insecure...deeds speak and history will be the judge.
