Hurricane Help List is on the way...
First I want to extend heartfelt thanks to the hundreds of P-1 members who sent offers of assistance to the Hurricane Help Line. You represent what being a law enforcement officer is all about.

The Hurricane Help List has been forwarded to P1 Member Tony Christiana, Commander of Operations for the Gretna (LA) PD. Tony is letting agencies in the area know of the list and will act as the coordinator of its dissemination. We will continue to forward e-mails that come in with offers of help to Tony and, through him, other agencies in the crisis area.

Speaking for the entire PoliceOne team, thank you.
