All departmental social media sites and all comments posted, however, are regularly monitored by administrators who reserve the right to report to the host site obscenities and hate speech.   Furthermore, users are subject to the host site's Terms of Service, and any user in violation of the Terms of Service will be reported. Accordingly, the public is cautioned that comments that are obscene, vulgar, sexually explicit, threatening in nature, advocate criminal behavior, discriminate, include clearly inaccurate information, or are unrelated to the intended topic of discussion or provide links to other third party sites, will be removed. Additionally, the MDPD has the right, with or without notice, to block access to its social media pages to any user who consistently violates the policy guidelines.

Since departmental social media sites are a public forum for the MDPD, any content posted is considered official business and is subject to proper retention and disclosure pursuant to Florida law.
