PoliceOne Wins WPA’s 2010 Maggie Award for Best Web Column
SAN FRANCISCO — PoliceOne.com, a leading online resource for the law enforcement community, announced it has taken home the award for Best Web Column at the Western Publishing Association’s 2010 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 top websites such as Truthdig and Reason.
PoliceOne received the award for Surviving the Streets, written by Lt. Jim Glennon, a veteran of the Lombard, Ill. Police Department and currently the lead instructor for the Calibre Press Street Survival Seminar. His monthly column provides honest and straightforward leadership and ethics advice to law enforcement professionals.
“This award is a testament to the quality of content we’ve produced and delivered to our audience for 10 years now,” said Alex Ford, CEO for Praetorian Group. “Of course, the majority of the credit of this award goes to, Jim Glennon, whose insightful opinions and advice help law enforcement stay better informed and safer on the job.”
PoliceOne received two nominations for the 2010 awards, also receiving recognition in the Best Web Publication/Trade category, which was ultimately won by its sister site, FireRescue1.com. The total matched PoliceOne’s two nominations from the 2009 awards.
PoliceOne’s parent company, the Praetorian Group, received five nominations for the 2010 Maggie Awards, ranking the company among one of the most-nominated media companies for this year’s awards, and adding to Praetorian’s total of 16 nominations over the past 3 years.
