Social Media Benefits
Ways that social media can benefit our police officers and Law Enforcement workers are:
- "Building a trustworthy relationship and a sense of community by engaging with each other"
- "Gaining control over the department's reputation with the community"
- "Providing a forum for people to ask questions and for you to share tips you otherwise wouldn't share"
- "Spread knowledge quickly and with minimal effort that could protect your community, help catch suspects, find missing persons, etc."
Law Enforcement- Social Media Overview
Social Media is very valuable to Law Enforcement professionals by helping them with crime prevention and investigation,but there many questions to how it is used exactly and how it can effect criminal investigations. A company named LexisNexis is doing a follow up study on how social can effect criminal investigations. The report can prove looks at current processes and practices and how it has changed over the last two years.
"Social media use in crime prevention is increasing both in use and importance to the
law enforcement personnel utilizing it."
"Survey respondents indicated several realworld
examples in which they prevented or
thwarted pending crime, including: stopping
an active shooter, mitigating threats toward
school students, executing outstanding arrest
warrants and actively tracking gang behavior.
73% believe using social media helps solve
crimes faster; up six percent from 2012."
Officers are able to use real information from social media to predict public gatherings and protests in order to plan ahead and try to prevent them from happening as soon as possible.
One social media that helps Law Enforcement workers catch criminals is Facebook. Facebook allows people to send tips to police officers after a suspect is bragging about his deviant behavior on the social media sites. Facebook can also help Law Enforcement workers receive information by allowing them to gather evidence of videos, pictures (etc.) through sites like YouTube and more. Another way workers can access information is by tracking their post to get a bit of an insight of their mentality.
Law Enforcement - Social Media Information
Throughout the United States professionals are relying on social media for their investigations. On a ratio the stats for the use of social media through Law Enforcement are very high and are expected to grow with oncoming years.
Instagram is another social media that can provide information for Law Enforcement workers. Just as Facebook and other social medias are based off of what people choose to post so is Instagram, an additional plus that can be beneficial from Instagram is that it has "Instagram stories" just like "Snapchat stories". Options you can choose from for Instagram stories are: a picture, a video, a boomerang (a replaying video), a hands-free video, and going live on your page. You can also "direct message" which is considered texting; you are allowed to direct message people that accept your follow request.
