Chicago Police Using Social Media To Improve Image

CHICAGO (CBS) — Chicago Police want the public not to just see them more often, but to look at them differently.

That’s what’s pushing a recent social media surge from within the department, WBBM’s Terry Keshner reports.

Facebook videos, Twitter posts and other social media efforts are part of Supt. Eddie Johnson’s new effort to change the culture of CPD after several police-involved shootings and other scandals that have made people mistrustful of police.

Sgt. Bob Kane, and Officer Nicole Trainor (above), who works in the Chicago Police News Affairs office, have been the faces of the Chicago Police Department’s  social media pages.
