You Bet Your Badge

Buck Savage Facebook As a veteran police trainer, author and media expert, Dave Smith takes an insightful look at some of the pitfalls, risks and professional perils of using social media when you’re a crimefighter.  He’ll discuss generational perceptions, social trends, and the unexpected workplace dilemmas created by police personnel and their off duty social networking.  Dave will share his own journey into the world of Facebook as his alter ego, “JD Buck Savage.”

You Bet Your Badge was developed for the 2011 Social Media in Law Enforcement (SMILE) conference in Chicago, IL, and was presented to an enthusiastic audience.  This workshop will prompt attendees to ponder, and safeguard, their own use of social media long after the event has ended.
