Fight Against Crime & Terrorism

The emerging role of new social media in enhancing public security

MEDI@4SEC focused upon enhancing understanding of the opportunities, challenges and ethical considerations of social media use for public security: the good, the bad and the ugly. The good comprises using social media for problem solving, fighting crime and decreasing fear of crime. The bad is the increase of digitised criminality and terrorism with new phenomena emerging through the use of social media. The ugly comprises the grey areas where trolling, cyberbullying, or live video-sharing of tactical security operations are phenomena to deal with during incidents.
