This Week's Guest On COPS on BLAB: Sgt. Tim Burrows

This Thursday, October 15th, 2015, at 8 p.m. P/T, Sergeant Tim Burrows (Retired) will be joining our BLAB and Episode 21 of The Law Enforcement Social Media Podcast.

About Tim

Tim is one of the founding fathers of law enforcement social media, having spent 25 years as a police officer with the last several years of his career spent leading the charge for law enforcement to adopt social media as part of its communication plan.

Tim is an innovator and world leader in the use of social media for policing, law enforcement and government organizations. He has worked with police, law enforcement, government, and non-profits in the development of social media programs, strategy implementation, risk management/mitigation and the day-to-day use of social media in the use of social media for law enforcement.

Tim is the creator of the first online conference for law enforcement social media and has authored several books on law enforcement social media and cyber safety.

You can follow Tim on Twitter at @TimBurrows1266 and visit his website, Walking The Social Media Beat.

Facebook Pages Are For The Community, Not The Police

We're fortunate to have the same belief Tim holds, in that police department Facebook pages are primarily for the community's benefit. When you look at it this way, you will reap more benefits in terms of support, cooperation, and understanding, than you ever could ever imagine.

Tim has written about this concept and we'll be discussing this theory among officers and the community alike.
