Workshop on social media and public security, 4 October, Paris

Also in... (Français)

Paris, September 2016 – Efus is organising for its members a participatory workshop on the use of social media for public security, as part of the European Medi@4Sec project in which it is a partner.

The Medi@4Sec partners will present a number of practices on the use of social media for security, and participants will discuss the relevance of these practices to their own local context.

In order to prepare this meeting, we are inviting our members to give us information on their use of social media for their security policy. Furthermore, if you wish to take part in the workshop, you’ll have the opportunity to present your practice (within the time frame available).

Through this project, Efus wishes to draw attention on local authorities’ needs and expectations in this area so that adequate research may be conducted.

Supported by the European Union Horizon 2020 research programme, Medi@4Sec seeks to examine how best to use social media against crime and the fear of crime, while preserving fundamental freedoms. The core partners in the consortium represent law enforcement agencies from several European countries, research organisations and SMEs.

To register for the workshop (within the limit of the number of places available) and/or send us your practices regarding the use of social media in your security policy, please contact: Pilar De La Torre or Elsa Fontanille
