fishbat, one of the nation’s leading online marketing companies, comments on an article published by the New York Daily News, which reveals a new social network developed exclusively for law enforcement officers.
According to a New York Daily News article published on September 2nd, titled “Ex-Police Commissioner Bill Bratton to Launch Social Network for Cops,” a new social network is being developed by former New York City police commissioner Bill Bratton. The network, called BlueLine, will be exclusively available to accredited members of law enforcement, including federal, state and local agencies. Officers will be able to “share their expertise, insight and information securely through video, instant messaging, videoconferencing and screen share capabilities,” the article says.
In the article, former NYC police commissioner Bill Bratton says, “Our intent is to have officers locate their counterparts and closely interact with each other on a number of topics such as gangs and counter-terrorism as well as share their best practices and strategies.”
Justin Maas, vice president of client relations at fishbat, one of the nation’s leading online marketing companies, says this, BlueLine will provide a new way for all law enforcement agents to collaborate and fight crime together. “Often times there is a bit of miscommunication between different law enforcement agencies,” he says. “This new social network could help bridge the gap for seamless communication. BlueLine will give police officers the ability to share PowerPoint presentations and create forums or databases. With sharable databases, it will be easier for police to locate criminals.”
Maas says it’s also the perfect platform for officers to use for networking. “It could act like a LinkedIn for cops and other officers,” he says. “Many cops stay away from using Facebook or Twitter for their personal profiles. This could provide a safe platform for them to use. It’s definitely going to be a new kind of social network. Perhaps we will see more of these popping up for other governmental employees or even specific industries.”
