BE CONNECTED brought together a group of more than 60 professional women for a morning of peer-to-peer networking and information sharing in Salisbury on May 5.
This month’s event featured Salisbury Police Chief Barbara Duncan who provided an interesting presentation on the evolution of social media and the role it plays in today’s law enforcement.
During the presentation, Chief Duncan highlighted the Salisbury Police Department’s use of Facebook and Twitter to routinely update community members. They share information such as crimes in progress, public service announcements, ongoing investigations, community engagement and notable arrests. Additionally, there are times that the department will even highlight enforcement activities like the location of radar enforcement or DUI checkpoints.
Chief Duncan explained, “Our goal is provide correct information on our sites, on a routine and consistent basis. We are the spot you can come to when people are seeking information because we are going to give you the correct information.”
Upon completion of the presentation audience members took advantage of the opportunity to have an open question and answer period with Chief Duncan.

The next event in the BE CONNECTED series, How to Survive Your Desk Job: Nutrition for Your Body & Mind will be held on July 14th.
