Page 2 RUNNING HEAD: POLICY DEVELOPMENT FINAL Abstract Law enforcement organizations are facing a tremendous problem with social media. On one hand, social media such as Facebook, My Space, and Twitter can be extremely useful for effective and efficient communication. On the other hand, Law Enforcement Executives are constantly facing situations in which employee misconduct is occurring through social media. Police Officers are accessing social media from their workstations and patrol cars during their shifts. Police Officers are posting information that is unbecoming for an officer as well as degrading and disrespectful to the profession. Police unions and police officer organizations such as the Fraternal Order of Police and the PBA are opposed to departmental policies that infringe on police officers’ constitutional rights. The purpose of this developmental policy is to research and study the most professional yet constructional way of containing and developing a department policy for law enforcement that will still allow them their constitutional rights and views. Keywords: Law Enforcement, Social Media

Page 3 RUNNING HEAD: POLICY DEVELOPMENT FINAL Social media has come to rise over the years namely within the past 10 years more so. As such, many people feel they are losing their constitutional rights or rather having them “violated” as they seek to obtain jobs, or seek government help for certain areas of their lives. However, as a whole it is more on the disciplinary actions and reform that need to withhold the constraints upon citizens and organizations that violate or “go against an organization’s policy”. Social media is defined in Merriam Webster as, “forms of electronic communication such as web sites for social networking and microblogging through which users create online communities to share information, ideas, personal messages, and other content such as videos [Def16]. As times change and people change as does innovative technology and the people whom operate and design such technology. For this very reason alone it may become necessary for precautionary measures to be taken upon social media when hiring an individual to a company or authorizing a check to a social worker to be distributed to an individual of the community. The reason for such is various reasons across the demands of the community as whole. To be more precise, checks are issued to individuals that are later seen and observed through social media partaking in alcohol and at parties meanwhile they cannot pay their bills.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
