How to spot and trace victims of police vloggers (and other social media)
The Dutch police has invested heavily in social media. A few thousand Twitter accounts, several Snapchat-cops and even 2 police vloggers. They want to be transparent about their daily work and difficult choices, but forget one thing: the privacy of suspects and victims. During a one-hour workshop we teach you how to spot and trace privacy concerns in social media messages of the police or other authorities. Some specific skills, that you can pick up during this workshop, are setting up your own database, geolocate the addresses of suspects and victims, and how to consider those privacy issues during your storytelling.
