Use of Social Media tool in Police Services – Interview with Toronto Police Constable Scott Mills

Interview with Toronto Police Constable Scott Mills - Use of Social Media tool in Police Services

I am in the process of writing an in-depth article about how Police Services in Canada and around the world use social media tools. Average readers may not know but police services are now using social media tools to help communicate with citizens, report crimes, and, in some cases, even prevent crimes. Think for a moment, “prevent crimes” amazing right?! Watch the video and see for yourself and you will realize it is dedicated and good policing assisted by new social media tools.

I’ve started collecting research materials for the article. The following is my first video interview. The interview was actually conducted and broadcasted LIVE this morning using Google+ and YouTube technologies (two of the social media tools used in Toronto).

I want to thank Toronto Police Constable Scott Mills (@GraffitiBMXCop) for his time in sharing his insights. Have a watch of the video. Stay tuned for more interviews (I am planning a few more) and the in-depth article to be posted later.

    It is interesting how technology works. The idea of preventing crimes is a good idea.

      Right on. I would be skeptical if I had not heard of the real life example Scott stated. And then I (or we collectively) realize that sometimes there are bad situations waiting to turn into tragedies for everyone involved (the potential victims and the offenders), it is much better that the acts were stopped before it turns really bad.
