Editor's note
It is an honor to announce that PoliceOne has been awarded the International Union of Police Association's Quill and Badge Award for Excellence in Communication. In detailing what the IUPA recognized as PoliceOne's "significant contribution to the law enforcement community," IUPA President Sam Cabral praised the P-1 team for maintaining a "...regular flow of news and instructional services that keeps officers in the field informed of important police activities throughout the country, provides them with important developments in training and practices, instills pride in their profession, and adds to their safety in a dangerous profession."

We are grateful to the IUPA for this inspiring recognition and to you, our members, for making PoliceOne what it is.

On another note, because of work being done on the site this week, PoliceOne.com was inaccessible for a period and our regularly scheduled mid-week newsletter (02.01) was not transmitted. We're back on schedule and apologize for any inconvenience.
