IACP Releases 2015 Social Media Survey Results
Chicago, IL – On October 24, 2015, the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) released the results from the 2015 Social Media Survey at the 122nd IACP Annual Conference and Exposition in Chicago, Illinois.
In the fall of 2015, the IACP conducted its sixth annual survey of law enforcement’s use of social media. The survey addressed the current state of practice and the emerging issues agencies are facing in regards to social media. The survey was sent electronically to law enforcement executives across the United States. A total of 553 law enforcement agencies, representing 44 states, participated in the survey.
In October 2010, the IACP launched the Center for Social Media to build the capacity of law enforcement to use social media to prevent and solve crimes, strengthen police-community relations, and enhance services. Since then, the IACP has created information and no-cost resources to help law enforcement personnel develop or enhance their agency’s use of social media and integrate these tools into agency operations.
