Why social media plays an important role in law enforcement
from In Public Safety
Many police departments across the United States use social media sites as an economical and effective way to inform the community about current events. Often, law enforcement agencies issue warnings and share real-time information that protects the public in emergencies such as weather events. Police departments also use social media sites to solicit public support in reporting crime. For example, police post crime data and trends to Facebook or Twitter to create public awareness and encourage citizens to report suspicious activity.
