Editor's Note:

As we close the book on 2011 and prepare to ring in the New Year, we're mapping out our planned columns for the Career Newsletter throughout 2012. For example, we'll examine the myriad ways you can scuttle your career on social networks versus the myriad ways you can advance your career on...yes, social networks.

Meanwhile, everyone at PoliceOne wishes you and yours a safe and happy holiday season.
