Social media management is a necessary part of any community engagement strategy. Developing quality content and posting regularly are vital but time-consuming aspects of using social media effectively.
LAW Digital is a social media management platform built to help law enforcement departments save time on creating graphics and more time strategizing, posting, and working on other initiatives.
Each month, we will recommend a selection of graphics from the LAW Digital library that are relevant to key events and holidays on the horizon, along with a free downloadable planning calendar to help you to plan and organize your social media posts for the month.
With schools back in session and fall right around the corner, September is a busy month, and content creation is no exception. See our recommendations for opportunities to educate your followers during the month of September:
National Preparedness Month
Right in the middle of hurricane season, September is the most active month for hurricanes. Find free graphics from educational tips to preparing for a hurricane to alerts informing your community of a hurricane watch or warning.
Recent storms in places like Eastern Kentucky and North Texas have brought historic rains leading to unexpected and disastrous flooding. Use our collection of graphics to provide key preparation tips for those in flood-prone areas, notices that a flood watch or warning has been issued, and important reminders about what to do if people are caught in a flooded area.
National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month & World Suicide Prevention Day (September 10)
Suicidal thoughts are more prevalent than one might think, and Suicide Prevention Awareness Month is a great opportunity to provide your community of followers with valuable resources on the topic, including warning signs, stages, and where to go for help. Be an advocate for mental health by sharing educational graphics on your social accounts.
