What is secured on PoliceOne.com?
Articles, tips, alerts, documents and other types of information that we deem as "sensitive" are not open for public viewing on our site. To access these pages, which are marked by this cuffs icon: , a member must be logged in and their account must be set by us as "confirmed." Non-confirmed members of PoliceOne do not have access to these pages.
What does it mean to be "confirmed?"
To maintain the integrity of our site, we only grant confirmation to members that have been verified as sworn law-enforcement.
How do I get confirmed?
Every member who wishes to be confirmed must go through our employment verification process. In most cases, this is simply performed by calling your agency/department and verifying that you are a sworn officer currently employed there.
If you are a full time sworn officer in the United States, your account (assuming you selected the category "US Law Enforcement" when you registered) will automatically be selected for employment verification. The number that we call is the same number that you entered in your account information when you registered for your agency/department – it should NOT be your personal/home phone number. Obviously, you can't verify your own employment, so the number should be for dispatch, the human resources/payroll/personnel department, or your supervisor.
If you are a reserve/auxiliary officer or a military officer you will need to contact us to request confirmation. You should provide a phone number for your department or supervisor if you have not done so already in your account information.
If you are a retired officer you will need to contact us to request confirmation. You should provide us with the number to the department and the name of a contact where you were last employed.
If you are an officer outside of the United States we cannot call to verify your employment. Instead, what we will need is a letter on official letterhead from either the human resources/personnel/payroll department or your supervisor stating that you are currently employed as an officer with your department. Included should be their title and contact information. You can fax it to (415) 962-8340 or scan and e-mail it to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that badges and IDs will not be accepted.
Members who registered under "Civilian," "Manufacturer," or "Non-Sworn" cannot be confirmed – if you registered under one of these categories in error (or have since become sworn law enforcement), contact member support.
