PoliceOne.com Named Among “10 Great Media Sites” by BtoB’s Media Business Magazine
Leading law enforcement Web site recognized alongside Business Week, PC World and Wall Street Journal
SAN FRANCISCO – PoliceOne.com, the leading online resource for law enforcement, has been recognized by BtoB’s Media Business Magazine in its annual “10 Great Media Sites” issue. The third annual compilation aims to reflect current trends, technologies and strategies employed by the top players in digital media, with a special focus this year on the challenge of monetization.
PoliceOne was recognized among a group of industry leaders that includes such top publications as BusinessWeek, Financial Times and the Wall Street Journal. In determining the list, the sites were judged across a number of categories, including appearance, organization and navigation; search functionality; video and other multimedia content; and community/social media (Web 2.0) features.
PoliceOne was selected in part for its success in bringing online video to a broad segment of law enforcement. BLUtube.com, the first online video community for law enforcement, and PoliceOneTV.com, an online video network featuring original programming for police officers, have combined to deliver millions of video views on key training topics as well as product features and human interest stories. The article also highlights the many interactive tools on both sites, which have been effective in providing a forum for officers to discuss and recommend important training videos.
“We are very pleased to be recognized alongside such a distinguished list of companies as a leading innovator in online media,” said Alex Ford, CEO of the Praetorian Group, PoliceOne’s parent company. “Not only is it a testament to the strength of our team and our hard work, but also indicative of the quality of content we produce and the creativity with which we deliver it to officers worldwide.”
PoliceOne now reaches an audience of more than 290,000 registered and confirmed officers, including 160,000 subscribers to the thrice weekly PoliceOne eNewsletter. The site features regular contributions from many top law enforcement experts, including Dave Smith, Jim Glennon and Chuck Remsberg. PoliceOne also produces the Street Survival Seminar, the leading source for police officer safety training for the past 30 years.
The September issue of Media Business is available now, and can be read online at www.btobonline.com/apps/pbcs.dll/section?category=mediabusiness.
