San Francisco – A new social media network designed for law enforcement is expected to launch in October. As reported by the Associated Press (AP), the site created by former high-profile New York City police commissioner and Los Angeles Police Chief Bill Bratton is expected to allow officers to share information through secure video, instant messaging, videoconferencing and other features.
Bratton is quoted by the AP as stating of hopes that the site will help bridge the gap in federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies being able to work more closely on reducing crime and other concerns, “This is a big void that needed to be filled… Our intent is to have officers locate their counterparts and closely interact with each other on a number of topics such as gangs and counterterrorism as well as share their best practices and strategies.”
The site, which is called BlueLine, will reportedly go live at the upcoming International Association of Police Chiefs’ annual conference in Philadelphia.
