Nice overview on some of the uses of #SocialMedia in #policing  today by +Emily Matchar http://goo.gl/0Y7hUJ. Whether it's building relationships, engaging the community to assist with solving crimes or communicate during emergencies/crisis situations. Social media, mobile applications and technology will continue to play a part in the everyday life of public safety professionals. Certainly an opportunity to embrace to help stop, prevent and solve crime. All while working in partnership with the community.

"@KerryBlakeman. The local Chief inspector of West Midlands Police is a great social media user. If you want a real insight into the police then you should follow this guy. It is important to your business what goes on in the area and Kerry Blakeman shares news, travel, missing people, crime and so much more. The police are really using Twitter well and I should add @WarksPolice here too as they also use Twitter very well. You could learn a lot from how the police use Twitter to share information, engage with people, and get stuff done"
