We’ve seen an uptick in activity by non-LEOs on the PoliceOne Facebook Fan Page. Although most of the people who choose to become “Fans” of PoliceOne on Facebook are supporters and like-minded thinkers, some are just jerks intent on getting a rise out of officers. Unlike the PoliceOne website itself, where we confirm law enforcement status and have tight control over members’ activity, Facebook is the ultimate arbiter of membership on Facebook Fan Sites.
We diligently monitor comments made on Facebook, and “Flag” as many inappropriate posts as we can, but we also appreciate your vigilance in keeping unwanted individuals off that page. If you see a person you think should be removed, please "Flag" their comments as inappropriate and report them to Facebook for punitive action. You can also "Block" their activity on their Profile page (click on their username) so you simply don't see those posts anymore.
In the end, try to not let these jerks bait you into posting something you’d not ordinarily post, and please email us directly with specific concerns. For more on what we're doing to address the problem, read a letter from our edtiorial director.
