Redwood City PD a Finalist forSocial Media Award

Good morning and happy Friday!

I invite you to share our pride in the Redwood City Police Department – they are really at the forefront of using technology and social media to connect with the community. Just take a look at and you’ll see what I mean: crime maps online, live video chat, file a report online, get traffic accident reports online, sign up for text/email notifications…and now they’re being recognized by the entire field of law enforcement for their forward-thinking strategies!

The Redwood City PD is a finalists for an “Award of Excellence – Small Agency” in the ConnectedCOPS Awards, a new awards program for law enforcement using social media. These awards were created (by law enforcement social media consulting firm LAwS Communications) to recognize the great work being done with social media, by individual sworn officers and law enforcement agencies. Winners will be announced on September 10, 2012. You can read more about the ConnectedCOPS awards here:

Being a finalist (and odds-on favorite to win, in my opinion!) for this award is very high praise, and truly points to the level of professionalism and creativity that our police department exhibits every day. Please join me in congratulating the entire force for their excellence in the use of social media, and their continual leadership, creativity, and innovation as they work to engage and educate the community. Thanks,
