From 2017-01-10 to 2017-01-10, Berlin, DE
The EU-funded MEDI@4SEC project will be hosting a workshop entitled ‘DIY Policing’ in Berlin, Germany, on 10 January 2017.
Social media empowers citizens to perform activities that fall within the range of police work and the work of other organisations dealing with public security. As modern Sherlock Holmes citizens assist the police and go beyond. They investigate crimes, identify suspects, form vigilante groups, hunt criminals and report on crimes.

The goal of the event is to discuss the opportunities and challenges of DIY Policing and its relevance for public security today and in future. Participants at this workshop will gain a deeper understanding of the opportunities and challenges of DIY Policing presents.
