Innovative Policing: How Madhya Pradesh Police is Using Social Media for Better Service

Madhya Pradesh (India), July 10: In a significant move, the Madhya Pradesh Police Department has embarked on an innovative initiative by leveraging social media platforms to conduct surveys. While platforms like Twitter yielded more critical feedback during the survey’s brief window, this initiative underscores the department’s commitment to embracing modern tools for public engagement.

This contemporary approach builds on a previous initiative from 2022, where the MP Police conducted a traditional academic survey to gauge public sentiment and assess their performance. The structured feedback collected back then was instrumental in refining their services. The current shift to social media aims to capture a broader, more immediate spectrum of public opinion.

However, the inherent vulnerabilities of social media, such as the misuse of automated bots, pose inherent challenges. This potential bias in the campaigns can lead MP Police to reconsider their strategy. To ensure genuine feedback, the department may avoid social media platforms for future surveys, instead using authenticated links shared via official handles can come into action. This will ensure that responses come from real individuals, resulting in more reliable data.

Engaging directly with citizens on social media signifies a progressive approach to modern policing. By actively listening to public opinions, the MP Police can pinpoint areas for improvement and better cater to community needs.
