Gov Central Groups: Connecting Government Workers

Gov Central Groups: Connecting Government Workers

Get connected.


What are Groups and Why Should You Care?

GovCentral is the nation’s premiere online law enforcement community, but with its daunting breadth, it can sometimes be difficult to navigate and find the specific niche with whom you have a particular affinity. That is why we created Groups. Groups are the perfect way to connect with GovCentral members on a more substantial and engaging level. Not only can you easily easily search through GovLink members in order to find people with similar interests, but you can discuss pressing issues on group-themed forums. There already over 50 groups formed on GovCentral; however, if you don’t find the one you are looking for, make your own and become a moderator.

Private vs. Public Groups

Government is a tight knit community that often deals with sensitive topics not appropriate for the civilian non-government population. For this reason – we have created both public and private groups. Public groups are used for interest based communication. Create a private group if you want to discuss private government-topics or you want to verify a user’s affiliation / location.

What You Can Do in a Group

- Invite on-site members and off-site friends

- Start both private and public discussions

- Send private messages to specific members in a group

- Send a mass private message to the whole group

Some of the most popular groups are:
