PoliceOne Wins WPA’s 2013 Maggie Award for Best Web Column
SAN FRANCISCO – PoliceOne.com, the leading online resource for law enforcement, announced it has taken home the award for Best Web Column/Trade at the Western Publishing Association’s 2013 Maggie Awards. Held in Los Angeles each year, the Maggie Awards honor the best print publications and websites in the Western United States.
The Best Web Column category recognizes general excellence across a series of columns by a single contributor. PoliceOne beat out a field that included its sister site, EMS1.com, as well as other top trade websites such as Java and Range.
PoliceOne received the award for 10-8: Life on the Line, written by Charles Remsberg, co-founder of the original Street Survival Seminar, author of three best-selling law enforcement training books and producer of numerous award-winning training videos. His nearly three decades of work have earned him the prestigious O.W. Wilson Award for outstanding contributions to law enforcement and the American Police Hall of Fame Honor Award for distinguished achievement in public service.
“We are honored to call ourselves Maggie award winners for the fifth year in a row,” said Alex Ford, CEO for Praetorian Group. “Naturally, the credit for this award goes to Chuck Remsberg, who has been a dedicated columnist for PoliceOne for many years now. This award is a testament to his impressive experience which he uses to share lifesaving lessons with our members.”
PoliceOne’s parent company, the Praetorian Group, received seven nominations for the 2013 Maggie Awards across three of its primary online portals: PoliceOne.com, FireRescue1.com and EMS1.com. The seven nominations ranked the company among one of the most-nominated media companies for this year’s awards, and added to Praetorian’s total of 39 nominations and eight wins over the past five years.
