Police branding and image management
Police branding and image management is not something that most law enforcement agencies have given much consideration until now. News and social media coverage of police activities and situations has put a spotlight on law enforcement and impacted the overall perception of policing. It is important that police, sheriff and other public safety agencies recognize they are a brand and in many ways a business. We are already aware of well-known law enforcement brands like FBI, NYPD, Chicago PD, LAPD, etc. It seems strange, since police and sheriff’s departments are a not for-profit business, but it’s time to think more about your brand and how it is perceived. When someone sees a police officer, sheriff’s deputy, wildlife game & fish agent, etc., they often already have a perception or feelings toward them. If you ask most people, they’re more than happy to share their feelings good, bad or indifferent.
Social Media Police Consultation
PHOENIX – Social Media Police Consulting is needed now more than ever. Let’s face it, most police, sheriff’s and other law enforcement agencies are 1 sentence away from a police social media disaster — police departments and are front and center in the digital age. iOS & Android apps, Twitter feeds, Facebook posts, YouTube videos, LinkedIn, texting, sexting…. frankly, it’s a little mind-numbing. Every action a police officer performs on or off-duty can be recorded, photographed, posted and scrutinized before anyone knows what happened.
