I have posted in a few areas about cops and blogging. I have also confessed to all of you that I do this as much for myself, as a form of therapy, as I do for the blogosphere. That is okay, and I believe it makes my posts all the more honest.
I just ran across an idea I should have thought of at this cool site. Cops Who Blog is an online community of cop bloggers. Any one is welcome to look around. The company, NING, lets you set up your own community, too. Communities could be formed for knitters, motorcycle owners, or cat lovers, each with a small niche on the net. Pretty cool.
Stop by and see what you think, then come back and let me know.
Hello and welcome to 21st century policing! I have always been interested (obviously) in how social media, blogging, etc. was going to affect my profession. Then I come across a revolutionary blog at this address. Kudos to the authors, who are blogging about police blogging!
I hope their site is a huge success. If the managers of even a tiny percentage of our departments can read – and learn – from these folks, then perhaps we can stop dragging, and start accompanying, our leaders onto the web. It truly will be better for cops, better for communities, and better for the web.
Thank you, Cops2.0!
I just read through this blog, and really liked what the author had to say. Do me a favor and stop by. I think you will enjoy it!
Hello all! As you know, we have been nominated as a BEST POLICE BLOG at this site. The voting is now open. We are, to be frank, a long shot. But wouldn’t it be neat?
Please stop by using this link and give us a vote!
Again, Happy Holidays!
Hello all! I received a message from a blogger who wants to compile a study of the best police blogs out there. I, humbly, believe we have a good conversation going here, so I took the liberty of nominating The Philosophical Cop.
If you like the idea, surf on over to their post at this link and let them know! I think once the list is compiled there will be a vote, and I will keep you up to date on the election. Thanks!
As you all may have seen in this prior post, I decided to host a blog carnival. I confess I had never heard of the idea until that week, but it immediately sounded like a great idea. Essentially, I advertised my “carnival” at the blog carnival website. By doing so, interested bloggers in the law enforcement / police arena were invited to submit entries for posting in a central location. That location will be on this special page within The Philosophical Cop!
I have already received half a dozen or so pieces, and I hope to make this a semi-annual or even monthly event, where the best cop bloggers can submit interesting and enlightening work. Hope you will come visit on January 15th, when the inaugural Cops and Lawmen Blog Carnival kicks off!
After slightly more than a decade of policing a major city, I have changed. I note at the outset that not all of these transformations please me. I look at people — just about all people, differently now. Some of the good guys don’t seem so good; some of the bad guys a bit less evil, and the line between the two is more blurry than ever.
