Community Leads

As you should all hopefully now have noticed our communities set up in the force specific areas are beginning to grow very nicely.  This is in no small part thanks to the brilliant community leads we have that are running and managing those communities. In total we have 49 communities on the forum but so far only 20 of them have a community lead.  We really want the other 29 areas to have a community lead of their own so if you want to be a part of the team managing the forum then this is your

Use Of Force Crests As Avatars

Use of force crests as avatars Unless you have express written permission form the force in question we are not able to use any force logos, crests or insignias in any back ground pictures or as avatars etc.  If you do get written permission from a force then we will need to see a copy of that. This isn't me being a killjoy as we have in fact in the past been asked to remove them by forces, it is their property and they are protecting it.  If any forces want to come on board with us that will

What else can we add?  Could there possibly be anything else to add? It's just a mere two weeks since we upgraded the site, originally it was going to be this weekend but wanting to be the best and most up to date UK Police related site we grasped an opportunity to upgrade sooner. The upgrade wasn't without it's hiccups but nothing we couldn't cope with and everything should be working now.  We are so confident with the site and the new platform that we are adding things all the time, some of

Instant Notifications

Most users across the site will rely on notifications to help to keep them up to date and informed on new content that has perhaps been posted in response to their own thread, or if a post has been liked etc. The downside to notifications was that they are only checked for new notifications on each page load. We have now introduced Instant Notifications. This means that when you receive a notification it will instantly show without you needing to reload the page. This of course is particularly u

Profile Photo - Required For All Users

Here on Police Community we are constantly looking to improve the look and feel of the website, one of the most visual aspects of the forum is profile images and it is for this reason that we no longer wish to allow users to not have a profile image.  With immediate effect we are asking all users to add a profile image, of course this does not need to be an image of you personally, it needs to be a profile image that you choose but it can be of anything appropriate.  Users who do not currently

Better and better

So we go from strength to strength.  First we had an absolutely terrific start and now at only 6 months in we've already upgraded to the latest available forum software.  It's an ongoing thing simply because this upgrade isn't just some updated software on top of the old one but a completely new set.  A huge amount of work has been ongoing for a while to plan for this and the go live day was frenetic work for a number of us to ensure we could get it up and running as quickly as possible but with

About us

Police Community was originally founded in 2014 by two serving Police Officers.

In 2016 it was incorporated as a limited company called RAW Digital Media Limited and then purchased 3 other forums; Police Specials, UK Police Online and Police UK to form the largest policing discussion forum network in the UK. In 2019 the decision was taken to merge all four forums into this main form of www.police.community
