Internetistunud elukeskkonnas oleks vist hea mõnikord lugeda ka teemakohaseid uuringuid. Politseinikud on spetsiifilise valdkonna esindajad ja ühtlasi ühiskonna (konstitueeriv) osa. Meediauuringud on keerukad ning see võib olla üheks põhjuseks, miks politseinike tegevust sotsiaalmeedias on küll uuritud, kuid siiski tagasihoidlikult paljude teiste valdkondadega võrreldes. Sestap siinviidatu oma koha leidiski. Lisaks eelnevale, on siinviidatu tekst ka vabalevis ning sestap pikki kommentaare ei vaja.

Kontekstist:

Social media may assist police with operational tasks, such as criminal investigations, intelligence, and crowd control. It offers a platform for communication, where police engage and interact with the general public (Dekker et al., 2020). Social media also offers a platform for individual police officers to engage with diverse audiences at an unprecedented scale.

Rootsi kontekst:

in Sweden, the pattern of internet use is more complex. For example, the use of social media is evenly distributed between urban (84%) and rural (80%) areas but there are differences in platform use by age and gender. For instance, Twitter has mostly male, urban users and a majority is in the younger age group 16–25 years (Internetstiftelsen, 2019).

Autorite ambitsioon ja politsei (raamistav) kontekst:

we present a systematic approach to searching, inclusion, and data extraction from Tweets made by police accounts. In the resulting sample, we explore potential differences between official (organizational) and individual accounts, and between urban and rural contexts. It is recommended that the impressions made by police accounts should adhere to the national Police Authority guidelines on social media use.

Lugemishuvi suurendamiseks ametkondlikust reeglistikust ja isiklikest arvamustest:

The Swedish Police Authority guidelines on social media use promote the use of Twitter and other platforms as part of the community policing model. The principles are general recommendations about how to produce and share information. We found that while the official accounts tend to follow the guidelines on social media use, personal accounts contravene the guidance more frequently.
