Social Media Survey Results

In September 2011, the IACP Center for Social Media conducted its second annual survey on law enforcement's use of social media tools. It recently released the results of that study on its website. The survey results include the input from 800 law enforcement agencies in 49 states.

The results show that 88.1% of agencies surveyed use social media. The top use of social media tools was "Crime investigation" (71.1%), followed by "Intelligence" (56.6%), and "Notifying the public of crime problems" (49.9%).

You can find the full results at the IACP Center for Social Media website.
