Ep 30: Robert Tornabene of Gate America

Today's episode is brought to you by Robert Tornabene is an active sworn police officer from the Greater Chicago area. He has taken what he has learned in policing and helps police officers and the community become safer and better prepared in the social age.  Robert has experience as a school resource officer, gang officer, public information officer and front line patrolman and supervisor that have all leant themselves to helping him establish Gate America, a training resource for the betterment of our communities. Robert was having a conversation on Twitter the other morning with a couple of people and the issue at hand was how posting information to social media regarding active situations with police activity could jeopardize the safety of not just the community but the public at large as well. Robert was inspired by the conversation and took to his blog to write about it. Read his post here:

We would ask that our communities share this information so that the next time an event happens; the public will be more cognizant of the potential outcomes.  This episode will also serve as the topic for #CopChat on Wednesday, June 3, 2015.
