NSFG - Not Safe for Government

NSFG is about applied innovation in state, city, and county government. It focuses on things that may appear to be not safe for government but really only sound dangerous - and can put the good back into public good. Bureaucracies resist the new, different, and disruptive. But the intractable problems and tired old processes of government need them. And citizens expect them. NSFG's origins can be traced back to the GovTech Social podcast, which focused on the community of Govies - that is, social media practitioners in state and local government - with tips and tricks for going social in public regarding platforms, policy and practices.

Lauri Stevens is a recovering journalist who has been working with law enforcement for 25 years, with much of that work focused on social media strategy.Stevens is the founder of a consultancy called LaWS, creator of the SMILE conference focused
on Social Media, the Internet and Law Endorsement.

Stevens spoke with regulars Anil Chawla (ArchiveSocial), Dustin Haisler (e.Republic Labs), and Paul Taylor (Govtech) about how the DNA of social media runs completely counter to long established police culture - but police departments need to embrace the medium anyway.  Stevens contends law enforcement can use. and is using, social media to advantage in both its investigative role and community policing efforts.
