As the next Sheriff of DeKalb County, I will engage with the community through
social media. A sheriff's department Facebook page is a great example!
Social media is an invaluable tool to law enforcement agencies in the 21st
Century. It can be used to:
Increase the department's transparency
Assist with staff recruiting
Educate the public on law enforcement related issues
Alert the public of emergencies/road hazards, and
Identify suspects in crimes
Most importantly, a sheriff's department's Facebook page comes at no expense
to the taxpayers. The surrounding county sheriff's department's also utilize Facebook... Check
them out below!
