TEXAS LEO BLOG FOR  SHARING HELPFUL POLICE MEDIA RELATIONS STRATEGIES, TACTICS & ARTICLES

The social media platform we built for the Anna TX police department, combined with a citizen-focused communications and public relations program, has drawn positive coverage by the local news media of APD's various services and events. In this latest story by KTEN TV 10 News about the APD Vacation-Watch Program APD officers take the reporter on a ride-along walking the reporter through actual home security checks. The KTEN story also featured the new website we built for APD as part of their overall new social media platform. (CLICK HERE FOR ENTIRE KETN STORY)

The new website for APD was the foundation of an overall APD social media platform developed to enhance communications with citizens, businesses and visitors. The new website and social media platform will enable APD to deliver important crime prevention, public safety and major incident information to citizens. Phase one of the overall program was the launch of the APD Twitter page @annatxpolice in May and Phase two was the launch of the APD Facebook page at annatxpolice in early June.

Facebook published this guide for law enforcement agencies. It provides an excellent overview for Police Departments, Sheriff's Offices and Constables for getting started on Facebook, and managing a law enforcement agency Facebook page. For law enforcement agencies the social media platform should include in order of important and use:

1-WEBSITE - Main Media Channel - where official press releases are posted first, along with a portfolio of published/broadcast news media stories.

2-TWITTER - Primary channel for all outbound communications - especially urgent broadcasts like impending danger (weather condition, hazmat incident, dangerous person) and provide a link to the same story on your Facebook page where readers can find details;

3-FACEBOOK - Two-way public interaction channel - Facebook is where you can publish in depth topic information and have unlimited two-way communications with those you serve. This "platform" of your Website, Twitter and Facebook provides you with your own "media" and enables you to render the traditional "news media" irrelevant. This will ensure you deliver factual, complete, unfiltered news to those you serve with reporters accidentally or intentionally altering it.
