Joanne has developed a niche voice for herself in the arena of law enforcement and social media.
Many years of study and practice in both distinct but now converging disciplines culminated in Joanne’s first book being published on this very topic in 2015. Joanne has a Masters in Digital Marketing (researching An Garda Síochána’s (Irish Police force) use of social media), a Masters in Journalism (researching the Morris Tribunal) a public inquiry into allegations of wrong-doing amongst members of An Garda Síochána in the Donegal Division).
