As promised I would like to introduce you all to MyPolice. The video below tells the story of the web-based service that fosters constructive, collaborative communication between communities and the police forces which serve them.
"The NPIA Citizen Focus and Neighbourhood Policing Programme is organising the first national conference for the police service in England and Wales looking at the impact of social media.
'Policing 2.0 - the Citizen and Social Media' will include presentations from forces who have been early adopters in using social media and speakers from outside the world of policing who will discuss the wider impact.
The emergence of cheap and accessible information technology and the increasing importance of the Citizen Focus approach means that police forces are beginning to use social media sites such as facebook and twitter as part of their communications and engagement strategies. At the same time citizens are looking to social media as a platform to comment on, or engage with policing."
I also have the Festival of Interdependence, Service Design Drinks, Future Gov and Mindapples to look forward to...and of course spending time with my most lovely London friends...you know who you are :)
I have been overwhelmed by the recent support I have received online and offline - huge big thank you to everyone for your advice, comments and RT's :)
