Police.Community is pleased to announce a new partnership with Police Mutual
Police Mutual offer financial services exclusively for serving or retired Police Officers, Staff and your families, this includes packages available to Special Constables.
For 150 years, they have been helping serving and retired Officers, Staff and their families with their finances.
With no shareholders, they are run for the benefit of their members and the Police Service, which means they can focus on
Providing those useful links to other partnership sites and support networks that can help in all sets of circumstances is something that we felt would be beneficial to our membership and would be useful to have in one, simple to use directory.
Whether that be from locating the web address of a local force or federation office through to receiving help, guidance and support from 3rd sector organisations that can help those in need we hope that Links Directory is something that is of use.
You can't help but have noticed that the site has changed in how it looks, well this is part of our two year anniversary celebration. Believe it or not it is almost two years to the day since we launched.
The site was created about a week before we went live in 2014 and the moderation team who came over worked really hard for that week to populate it ready for an influx of new members. Who would have thought that two years later we would be where we are.
We have kept the site up to t
For some time there has always been the facility to follow content and be notified of responses as and when replies are made to your favourite topics but how about those topics that you read and then question why they keep appearing in your news feed as they are of no interest to you?
Well as of today as a VIP or Lifetime VIP member you will have the ability to Ignore Topics. This will prevent it coming up in your news feed and in any searches you make if you choose to ignore it. You will
It is with great pleasure that @Chief Rat and I would like to welcome @Cheetah to the Management Team here at Police Community. @Cheetah has a proven track record with the forum and has been a valuable member of the wider Police Community Team for some considerable time. Cheetah's work ethic and commitment to keeping the forum running and available for all the members is something that I am very grateful for and as Cheetah now takes up his new position on the Management Team I am sure that you w

With the introduction of our awards system here at Police Community we intend to introduce a series of awards that are automated and granted based upon your activity across the forum. With this in mind we have started our first two automated awards which are for a contribution to the blog section or a contribution to our downloads section.
Some people will have already made contributions to these areas and for that we are grateful however in order to qualify for
We are very pleased to announce that the Awards and Badges have now returned to the forum.
Some of you will see that you already have some awards or achievements in your forum posts. Those who already have them will have got them as a result of the transfer over from the old site all that time ago, however, a lot of you won't have them.
If you do have them or when you do get them they will display either on the left under your name or at
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all.
For the duration of the Christmas and New Year period the chat room is now open to all PolCom members and not just the VIP's
It will close again the weekend after the New Years Celebrations.
In line with our ambition to continually improve and develop the services we here at Police Community offer to our members we realised that we need to improve the 'Priority Support' we offer to our VIP members and with this in mind we have been working hard to develop and integrate a solution that will do just that.
For those of you that know the team and have been members for a fair bit of time, you will notice how committed the team are and that they are always
This time last year I opened the doors of Police Community for the very first time and welcomed each and every one of today's membership to join in our new forum. Since embarking on the journey to create the forum I have been overwhelmed by the level of support and engagement our members have had.
In that 12 month period we have been supported by our sponsors @Gladstoneboots LTD and @Police-Supplies who had the foresight to s
As you should all have noticed the forum software has now been updated to the latest version.
There have been one or two changes and these have caused a couple of issues for some of our members. With this in mind this blog post should hopefully help you out with a couple of things.
As some of you will have noticed you may have started receiving more notifications (emails). This is in part to how the site was original
Pleased to announce that for the duration of the Bank Holiday weekend our chat room will be open for all members of the site.

Just a quick note to let you know we have changed the address of the forum from http://forum.policecommunity.co.uk and made it simpler to just http://police.community
All the old links will still work, nothing should be broken, you will simply be re-directed to the original content under its new name. It will feel seamless to you and you will not have to do anything other than carry on using the site. The only difference is that when you tell anyone about the forum you now just need to remembe

I'm sure you will give Uppy a very warm welcome and ensure that the same level of respect etc is shown towards Uppy as you do the rest of the team.
What's the most times you've ever edited a post you made? Edited it because something was wrong or didn't look right? Maybe you added something thinking it would look brilliant but in the end it didn't so you edited it. Maybe you wanted to add something but thought it wouldn't look good so you didn't.
We may have a solution for you.
Another new feature we have added is our new Test Area. You need to be logged in to use it but that is about as far as the rules go (aside from normal forum rul
Points make prizes.
I present to you the Police Community Premier League Table
Another new feature we are presenting to you is a league table. At the end of the month a member wins our member of the month award for their overall contribution to the forum in that month, this premier league table is for the same purpose except that we will be awarding the prize of 'Member Of The Year'.
So how do you win points? Easy, just enter and win our competitions, including the daily threads and you'll
Looking for a job within the police? Any force or a specific one? What kind of job? Police? Staff? Special Constable? PCSO?
To help you with your recruitment interests we now have a completely new area dedicated solely to the recruitment status of every force.
We have listed all the forces in England, Scotland and Wales and each one shows the current position on recruitment. You can see at a glance if a specific force is actively recruiting for any of the four main roles, Police Constabl
Ever wondered how you are doing with regards to your contribution and post count compared to others?
Well now you can wonder no longer as I introduce to you the Member Leader Board. This can be found in the links bar on the top of all pages under the 'Members' heading. It can be seen by all members but not by guests.
The bottom row will show what your contribution is and is only view-able to you so that you can compare your figures against the highest scoring 25 members by week, month, year a
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
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
