 How police lost the Twitter war in Ferguson
 5 reminders for police command post operations
 August 20, 2014
Dear PoliceOne Member,

A lot of attention has been paid to the ongoing chaos in Ferguson, and a number of folks have asked me to offer commentary on the matter. My reply has generally been, "What, precisely, might that comment be? I don't have boots on the ground in Ferguson."

That changed a couple days ago, when PoliceOne Columnist Joel Shults went there to speak with officers on the scene, and report back to PoliceOne what he's learning there. Today we carry two of his dispatches, plus, check out a video interview Chief Shults did with a local television network.
