It’s always a good idea to set your own uniform resource locator (URL), aka Web address, on every platform that allows it. We’ve already covered how to do that on Facebook here on LawOfficer.com. Because more and more police officers are joining LinkedIn these days, here's how to set your own URL there.

After you log in to LinkedIn:

1) In the upper right corner, in the pull-down menu where your name is, select Settings.

2) In the bottom half of the page, select Profile if it isn’t selected by default.

3) Over to the right under Settings, select Edit your public profile.

4) Then, on the right-hand side, in the second section, look for Your public profile URL.

5) Click Customize and enter the name of your liking.

In this photo taken Thursday, March 12, 2015, Seattle police officer Debra Pelich, right, wears a video camera on her eyeglasses as she talks with Alex Legesse before a small community gathering in Seattle. The camera is attached to a battery pack and controls on the officer's uniform. As police departments struggle with police body camera videos, the Seattle police, under the direction of new Chief Kathleen O'Toole, are voluntarily putting blurry, silent versions of the videos on YouTube, giving the curious a chance to see what they entail while also protecting the privacy of those depicted.
