Police and social media

5 Comments

In connection with an assignment we are writing on we want to look into how the Norwegian police can use sosial media to acchive a better dialog and collaboration with the communities. Today there is just some minor attempts on doing this  (a couple of blogs and Facebook pages), and we believe there is a huge potential on this area.

Do you have any examples, own experiences or just good ideas on how this can be done ?

Please leave a comment and share🙂

  1. I think that the Norwegian police, forces and Government should have a Strategy conference about this. I know a lot about this, and I guess there are a lot of others.
    Even if it’s all right to chat about this, it’s even better to meet face to face and discuss this in a structured context.
    But let’s warm up here!

  2. I totally agree with you Per Olav. We should have a talk about that some day soon!:)
    But before that I have to write this assignment.
    So – any immediate thoughts ?:)

  3. This is a good question, I think most police forces are getting involved with this.

    In the UK over the past 8 months we have begun to gett this issue onto the policy agenda btoh by holding two national conferences (the first was so successful we had to hold a second within 6 months). Arising from that was the need to develop some guidance and highlight some case studies, so we created the Engage Guide http://www.npiadocuments.co.uk/engage.pdf

    Please feel free to use, adapt and circulate as you wish. (any feedback would be gratefully received).

    In additon we have drafted a policy document for our chief police officers (happy to share via e mail).

    The Engage document is itself a demonstration of the power of social media, we wrote it collaboratively on a wiki – in 15 working day – between 1st and 19th March and published on 31st of March this year).

    Happy to assist in anyway I can

  4. Thank you so much for your input🙂

    I think it is an Impressive work you have done in the UK, and we have quite a long way still to go here in Norway. But we see more tendencies to a greater awareness of how this can be used to achieve more dialog between the police and the communities.

    Would be good to hear more about your conferences, – I think we have to something similar here in Norway🙂
