Policing 2.0: The Citizen and Social Media

by Dave on October 25, 2009

in Events, Presentation

While Andrew was so marvelously blogging Government 2010 last Thursday, I was at an event organised by the National Police Improvement Agency, giving a presentation which was an overview of web 2.0 and what it means for public sector services like the Police.

Here are my slides:

Also talking at the event were Will from Talk About Local, Sarah and Lauren from the excellent MyPolice (Sarah wrote a guest post here on DavePress about the project a while ago) and Nick from COI; along with several great representatives from the Policing world who talked about the stuff they are doing in the real world, with blogs, Twitter, YouTube, Facebook and even running virtual local meetings with CoverItLive. Inspiring stuff.

Check out all the tweets from the event here.

Massive props to Nick Keane for getting this going. With any first events of a type, the main thing to do is to whip up enthusiasm, and get people talking. Nick achieved that today, and I’m excited about whatever comes next.

Good work. I can’t help but think that the key value of your presentation is “what this all means”. Hopefully your narrative delved deeper into this. It’s true that social networking is a bit of a novelty in some governments. Nevetheless, there are patterns in adoption. And, there is enough to help us understand how social networking will transform government.
