Editor's Note:

PoliceOne has recently rolled out a couple of great new features that we hope will help you better access all the information we have to offer.

Our new top navigation tabs feature pull-down menus that let you jump to different areas of the site. For more specific searching, try the new advanced search function, which lets you search with keywords in categories like columnists, topics, date ranges, and states.

We'd love to hear your thoughts about the new features, as well as anything else you'd like to see on the site.
