The most recent episode of the radio show Spark on the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) was about the use of social media by law enforcement
. Spark, hosted by Nora Young, is the CBC's program about technology and culture:
"This Spark is all about social media and law enforcement. We’ll hear about how police are using tools like Facebook and Twitter right now, and what they should (and shouldn’t) be doing online. And we’ll get a glimpse of the other side: how the “bad guys” use social media. To us, the question is: how can police take advantage of all the opportunities that social media offers, while avoiding the pitfalls? How can law enforcement get to the point where solving a crime on Facebook isn’t fluke or happenstance, but rather, part of regular policework?"
