DailySplice Launches Law Enforcement 2.0 Podcast – “Social Media @Large.”

Victoria, BC, (Oct. 23 2009) - DailySplice, creator of the Podcast Station and specializing in online communications for law enforcement, has launched a new podcast titled “Social Media @Large.” The Podcast Station itself is branded for DailySplice and called “The Law Enforcement 2.0 Podcast.”

The podcast will delve into the world of new social media and its role in law enforcement. This subject is very new to the web 2.0 conversation, and DailySplice is one of few companies covering it in depth, let alone doing a podcast about it.

“Many police departments have become active on social networking sites like Facebook and Twitter, but most still are very fresh to the idea and looking to learn more,” said CEO Rian Bowden.

Bowden hopes the podcast can become a one-stop hub for all discussion related to social media and law enforcement.

The podcast has been created by DailySplice Marketing Coordinator, Mike Waraich, who has been researching social media’s role in law enforcement for some time, and blogging about it and discussing it in groups and forums.

“I created a group on LinkedIn also called Law Enforcement 2.0, and started to really pick up some popularity,” says Waraich. “Once I realized the growth and popularity of the group and recognized our need to start podcasting the Social Media @Large podcast was a no-brainer.”

Waraich will not solely contribute to the podcast, however. The podcast will be open for others in the niche field of web 2.0 and law enforcement as well.

“I am opening this up to some of the industry’s top thought-leaders,” says Waraich. “Bringing in opinions and perspective from others in the industry will bring about greater value for listeners; much like it did for readers in the LinkedIn group.”

So far, the podcast has 3 episodes – an inaugural episode, a discussion episode featuring Christa M Miller from Cops2point0.com and Lauri Stevens from ConnectedCops.net, and An interview with Chief Dan Alexander from the Boca Raton Police Department. Waraich intends to release at least one weekly episode. Contributors will add episodes as they please.

POLICE PODCASTS CONNECT WITH THE MASSES


POLICE 2.0: NEW TECHNOLOGY PUTS POLICE AT THE FOREFRONT OF SOCIAL MEDIA

DailySplice.com launches Splice Stations, a podcast system that makes social media accessible to any organization… even your local police department!

Victoria BC, September 16, 2008 – Victoria’s Saanich Police are targeting the iPod generation, becoming Canada’s first podcasting police, and among the first in the world to use online multimedia to keep in touch with the community.

What’s prompted a police department to go web 2.0? It’s a new and innovative technology developed by DailySplice.com called Splice Stations. A Splice Station is a podcast system for organizations that makes it easy to find, gather, and broadcast multimedia through their website. In other words, it makes social media so easy that even the cops are joining in!

The police department has already prepared over 50 media clips ranging from safety tips to surveillance videos of unsolved crimes. These clips will start appearing on the saanichpolice.ca website, along with regular media updates recorded on location over the phone by the department’s public information officer Sgt. John Price. “Podcasting is the fastest growing communication medium in history … The Saanich Police want to be part of that medium.” says Price. ”We already use our web site, local, provincial and national media, and our Block Watch program to release information to our community- now we are hoping this new technology will add to our efforts.”

DailySplice, who is celebrating their 1st birthday today, has also caught the attention of AbeBooks.com and the University of Victoria with their new technology. Using their Splice Station, AbeBooks.com is aggregating the best in online audio and video related to books and channeling it through a specialized player on their website. “It’s innovative and easy to use.” says Richard Davies, PR Manager for AbeBooks.com. Book lovers can find the world’s most interesting book reviews and interviews by visiting the AbeBooks.com website and looking for the “Shelfsound” logo.

The University of Victoria has launched two Splice Stations, one that plays business podcasts, and one that plays Software Engineering podcasts. Both Stations combine content that has been produced by the University of Victoria with related content that can be found elsewhere around the world.

“What makes Splice Stations different from any other podcast system is that it does not require an organization to produce and upload their own content.” says the company’s co-founder Rian Bowden. According to Bowden, there are hundreds of thousands of free podcasts already on the Internet on just about any topic you can think of. Splice Stations utilize all this free content to create low maintenance communications tool that delivers up to date information on a given topic to their website visitors.

DailySplice’s mission is to modernize the concept of radio by creating customized stations that you can play online or subscribe to through email. The company was founded in 2007 by a group of business and computer science students at the University of Victoria. The company has won multiple awards, and has launched a number of innovative products in its first year. DailySplice has received attention from clients and investors around North America, and looks forward to rapid growth as its technology gets adopted.
