Katie Nelson is the Social Media & Public Relations Coordinator of the City of Mountain View Police Department. 

The Mountain View Police Department is a leader in the social media space for law enforcement using a scientific approach to how they execute their digital communications. 

Combining pop culture, analytical insights and listening to their audience has made them tuned into how to most effectively share their public safety messaging.

Katie is always willing to share her expertise and experience.

Also in this episode, I open by sharing the Smart Squad App that has been created by Faction Four System Inc.

This platform and its technology adaptation for police is a game changer for any police department that is looking to manage resources more effectively with increased efficiency.

Huge and special thanks to the "OKAYestCop" who pointed out the video and the Smart Squad App to me.


Note - Me talking about the Smart Squad App is not a paid endorsement... just me sharing a really great resource.
