FBI launches latest suite of social media tools

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

The FBI has rolled out a number of new web initiatives during the last few years. These initiatives include an e-mail alert service, syndicated news feeds and a series of podcasts and widgets that make it easier for the public to assist them in tracking down wanted fugitives and missing children, to submit tips on terrorism and crime and to get the latest FBI news and information.

The Los Alamos Police Department is open to the idea of embracing the latest technological advances as well in its crime solving and prevention pursuits.

“We already provide a way for the public to submit tips anonymously to us through the county’s website and we have used FaceBook at times as a means to monitor certain activities,” Capt. Kevin Purtymun said. “Any trend that helps efficiency and returns positive results is something we will pursue.”

Det. Doug Johnson explained that the police department wants to be where the people are and describes many of the current social networking tools as “excellent resources.”

“These technologies are being considered and I think it makes good sense for us to be aware and familiar with all of the technologies that are out there as they become available,” Johnson said.
