The Police Podcast

The Police Podcast brings together police officers, the agencies they represent and the communities they serve. We discuss current events, social media, best practices when dealing with the police and the lives our officers live. When we aren't talking with officers, we talk to business leaders in industries that can have positive impacts on helping agencies and officers do better jobs. Experts from communications, finance, equipment and training bring their real world knowledge to help inform and educate our nation's protectors.

On today's episode I get to speak to Julie Wong and Bernice Chan of the Alzheimer Society of Toronto. 

When I was working the streets one of those calls that always caused you to go the extra mile and dig a little deeper was a call for someone with Alzheimers that had gone wandering/missing. 

One of the most beneficial things to do is learn more about the disease of Alzheimers and dimentia related brain illnesses and challenges. 

That's why I'm so excited about this episode...information from the experts about things you can do, things to look for and tips to help you in search and strategies for prevention.

This episode is not just for law enforcement but also the families that meet the challenge of this horrible disease and our communities at large. 

Julie and Bernice have provided some great resources here for you and I encourage you to educate yourself.

It doesn't matter where you're from, information is infromation and it will be applicable no matter where your jurisdiction is.

Today's episode is brough to you by our friends at Geofeedia...

Geofeedia Be There social media geo based monitoring

Jonathan Cole Lucas is the young man that had an idea for an app and has seen that idea turn into reality launching the geo-based platform Burn Book.

Burn Book is based on anonymity and is gaining popularity with late teens and early 20 somethings. With the new popularity, also comes problems that only get amplified becasue of the anonymous appeal to a younger crowd.

Jonathan has a different idea for anonymity, "It can be something beautiful." and he isn't wrong. He sees a different kind of anonymous app and is trying to keep Burn Book fun without the problems associated to many of the other anonymous based platforms.

He even shut the app down for a time being to work out some of the issues that he didn't like developing in the system. You get the idea Jonathan is interested in providing a safe environment while at the same time protecting the 1st as much as he can to balance both.

As I've said about many platforms...you can't always blame the platform, sometimes you blame the people becuase some people don't know how to act:
