On January 26th, join ArchiveSocial and the Ohio Department of Public Safety (ODPS) for a discussion about the critical role of social media. ODPS leverages social media networks to share important information from the public safety agencies under their umbrella, including the Bureau of Motor Vehicles, Emergency Management Agency, and the Ohio State Highway Patrol to diverse audiences across the state. Furthermore, ODPS has smartly employed policy and technology to comply with public records requirements and minimize the potential risks of social media. Learn first-hand from the ODPS Social Media Coordinator, Jessica Pierson, about the emerging role of social media in law enforcement and the important lessons she’s learned about messaging, citizen engagement, and record keeping.

  • How the Ohio Department of Public Safety extends their reach through social media.
  • Real life examples of the benefits and liabilities agencies have encountered when using social media for public safety.
