  • Changes to Officer.com?

    I just noticed on the main page that O.com has been acquired by Cygnus Public Safety Group. Does this mean there will be any changes to the message boards or is it to soon to tell?

    The BB will be upgraded, and a few features added, but other than the makeover and some new features, life will continue much as before.

    We have had change here in the past, and always rolled with it - life goes to the adaptable.

      I just discovered the first changes when I signed on a few minutes ago. My first thought was "Now what do I have to learn to do differently?" It was easy and looks great.

        Yes it does look great! I was concerned that the new owners would do away with the message board or integrate it into some sort of Fire/Police/EMS type forum, but I'm glad to hear things will mostly remain the same

            You are probably like me and have the favorite link going straight to the forum. Go to the home page for O.com - it looks good. I just hope non LE members are still welcome.

            Of course civilians will be welcome!

            I personally wouldn't be on this site if it were officer only, it would be to boring.

              Dear Officer.com Forum Users,

              We would like to welcome you to Officer.com, now operated by the Cygnus Public Safety Interactive team. Over the coming weeks and months we'll be ramping up expansion of the site, with a major relaunch scheduled by September 1st and continued growth...forever.

              We hope you'll continue to be active participants in the forums and promoters of the site as well as we grow it over the coming months.

              Jim has worked very hard over the years building one of the premiere sites in public safety online, and we hope to only grow that tradition as we grow Officer.com.

              While certainly there will be advertising and sponsors, as is needed to support the considerable growth we hope for, and will work with Jim closely to realize many of the dreams he has personally for the site, we will never compromise the integrity of the site, and more importantly the forums, to make a buck. Many of those who will be working on this site, including a dedicated full time staff of five people starting later this summer, will have a law enforcement or public safety background.

              We hope to vastly grow the daily news content, expand and upgrade these same forums, integrate unique features like live chat, job postings, and training content, plus a lot more.

              Again, thanks for making Officer.com what it is today. We can only hope, as we've said, to expand on what Officer.com is and not over commercialize or push products at you as some other sites may, and instead present the users with a balanced level of content and information you need to perform your job, with marketplace and product research tools that enhance your ability to carry it out.

              If you have any concerns, ideas, things you'd love to see here, new categories....just about anything, just drop us a line at [email protected]

              Thanks again. We hope you'll be proud of the expansion of the site and continue to be a strong supporter.

                The new home page looks so.....aggressive. I LIKE it!
