To all our wonderful members ....
Many of you will know that the team here at Police Community have been involved in the running and administration of not only Police Community, but www.policespecials.com www.policeuk.com and www.ukpoliceonline.co.uk for many years, in some cases since as early as 2004.
In 2014 Police Community was the newest addition to the forums and grew from strength to strength. In 2016 we purchased the other three forums to create the largest network of policing forums in the UK, something we are exceptionally proud about.
As with every business we have to consider what is the most viable and beneficial way to take each of the forums forwards. In some areas of the group we have seen decline, such as within the Special Constabulary and in other areas some growth with the large scale recruitment into regular policing across the UK.
Over the last two years we have maintained each of the forums as separate entities and our moderation team have worked tirelessly to keep all four forums going and as legitimate entities. With this has come some difficulties in terms of identity and we have had several discussions over the last two years about how best to take them all forwards.
We have decided that the best way to progress and ensure that the business model is sustainable moving forwards is to amalgamate all four forums into one single "super" forum here at Police Community. Whilst I know some members will be nostalgic over the other forums, a feeling we as a team also share, we also feel that it is the right time to take this bold and exciting step into the next chapter of the UK's largest policing forum.
So work has begun on migrating content from the other forums across to here and this will continue over the coming days. All topics, posts and member accounts from all four forums will merge into Police Community.
If you already have an account on police community sharing the same email address then your account will be merged. If you do not have an account here then your account will be migrated. All your posts topics and content will also be migrated across and over the next few days moved into corresponding areas of the forum.
You literally have nothing to do other than to continue posting, engaging and enjoying the forum and other members. The only difference is that the content will now be here rather than on the legacy sites.
We are working hard to make sure all web addresses map to the migrated topic on this forum so that everything is as seamless as possible.
If you have any comments or questions please just drop a note below and one of the team will get back to you.
As always thank you for your continued support and we look forward to you continuing to enjoy Police Community for many years to come.
