A Toronto police constable is using a popular social network to keep in touch with members in his community. Scott Mills is using the popular site Foursquare.com and he encourages other public servants to do the same. Scott feels social media is a useful tool in getting to know his community as well as letting the people know when he's on duty, if there are any dangers to worry about and he feels it builds a nice relationship with the members in particular.
Folks love to comment when he checks in and he encourages people to comment; the more they reach out, the more he can connect.
If your local police authorities used social media to interact with you, would you socialize or do you thinks it's a bad idea completely?
