Fort Worth PD: A Move from Manual to Automated ArchivingDownload Case Study
Monitor and Moderate the Conversation
Online channels like social media represent a great opportunity for public safety organizations to engage with the public and share critical information, but it also introduces certain challenges. Public safety tends to see some of the highest levels of online engagement in the entire public-sector sphere, so properly managing this constant two-way stream of information can be difficult. What do you do when you have 300,000 Facebook followers and every post receives hundreds of comments?
With this in mind, law enforcement, fire service, and emergency management need a way to monitor online conversations for inappropriate behavior and capture all content in real-time so even deleted content is archived. Whether it’s an agency deciding to delete someone’s profanity-laden comment or an external user removing their own incriminating message, having access to deleted content can be immensely useful. Not only is this important for compliance with open records laws but it also helps in creating an open and inclusive public forum, and ultimately, a safer and more close-knit community.

To assist public safety organizations in monitoring and online data, Pagefreezer offers a suite of products that simplify and automate the creation, retention, management, and disposal of online data. Below are some solution highlights.
Monitoring and Data Loss Prevention
Actively monitor conversations on social media and enterprise collaboration platforms to ensure compliance with communication policies and prevent data loss. Alerts are based on lists of keywords, pre-defined text and number patterns, profanity, and custom text patterns.
View content in the original look and feel. Next to each social media message, for instance, the interface displays the metadata for that message and the history of all changes. Pagefreezer displays all message types, images, comments, and replies to comments in the same way as they appeared on the original social media platform.
Track changes and deletions across webpages, social media posts, and messages. Pagefreezer makes it easy to compare different chronological versions; deleted content is highlighted in red, with deletion date and time clearly shown. Changes/additions are shown in green.
Use full-text search to find specific archived pages, messages, and social media posts. This makes eDiscovery and general content collection much easier, ultimately saving time and money. Users can search by keywords, phrases, boolean operators, social media networks, accounts, and date ranges.
Export selected data in formats like PDF and WARC. Specific social media accounts, selections of messages, open records cases, or even a complete account archive can be exported. The exports include all selected messages and conversation threads, as well as associated metadata.
Retention Scheduling and Legal Hold
Automate the disposal of data and simplify alignment with your organization’s record retention policies through retention scheduling. Data can also be placed on legal hold to override retention schedules.
