We are BACK !!! The forums of www.policespecials.com, www.ukpoliceonline.co.uk, and www.policeuk.com have been sold by Red Snapper Media Limited to a new owner RAW Digital Media Limited www.rawdigitalmedia.co.uk who are the owners of Police Community www.police.community RAW Digital Media are now working hard to get the remaining forums back with you as quickly as possible. RAW Digital Media and Red Snapper Media will work as partners across the coming years to support the forums and to promote both enterprises. Out of this acquisition, a professional business relationship with Red Snapper Media has been formed and we will look to develop an advertising strategy to help promote some of Red Snapper's products whilst they mutually promote all four of the forums across their extensive media network. This is a mutually agreeable position that brings benefits to all concerned and we are delighted with the partnership we have formed with Red Snapper Media to allow this to happen. We would like to take this opportunity to thank Martin Jerrold at Red Snapper Media who has made clear that he wants the forums to continue and took very seriously his responsibility to agree the best possible home for the forums moving forwards. We would also like to thank the membership across all four forums for their continued support. As many of you will know Chief Rat and myself have been at the helm of all the forums at one point in time or another historically, and more recently on Police Community. We have been supported by a fantastic team of Moderators both past and present who commit their own time to moderating and managing the forum. This team has been led by Cheetah who was promoted to "Lead Moderator" when Police Community was incepted. He has done a fantastic job and has supported the Management Team so much so that he was promoted to a junior Management Role in 2016. His commitment and dedication has been invaluable and with the new challenges that now lie ahead in managing four forums I would like to formally welcome Cheetah to the full Management Team. Cheetah will be changing his name to Chief Cheetah in recognition of his full management role and will have an equal role to that of Chief Rat and myself across all four forums. If you have any questions please feel free to ask but this is most definitely going to be an exciting time for the future of the Police Community group of forums. Chief Bakes Co-Founder of Police Community Group# *UPDATE* Please see this statement from our Strategic Partner Martin Jerrold, Managing Director of Red Snapper Media http://www.rawdigitalmedia.co.uk/statement-from-martin-jerrold/
Would you like to join the Moderation Team on any of the following forums, www.policeuk.com, www.policespecials.com, or www.ukpoliceonline.co.uk ? With the forum group now growing we have in place a Global Moderation Team who have Moderator access across all four of our forums at www.police.community www.policeuk.com www.policespecials.com and www.ukpoliceonline.co.uk What we are looking to do is now introduce Resident Moderators who will be responsible for the moderation on one specific forum. Which forum is up to you. The Global Team will continue to moderate Police Community and support the other three forums but we would look for members of those forums or this forum to step up to moderate. You will have full moderator access across that specific forum and will be able to influence the day to day management of the forum supported by the Global Team. If this is something that interests you then applications are open and we would invite you to submit your application online at the following web address; https://www.rawdigitalmedia.co.uk/dashboard/submitticket.php?step=2&deptid=7 You will be given the relevant Resident Moderator badge if your application is successful. Applications close on the 31st January 2017
New Membership Packages Following on from the acquisition of 3 new policing forums to the group we have reviewed the Membership Packages and decided that we are going to give them a re-vamp and make them consistent across the sites. With that in mind I am excited to introduce them to you. First thing that needs to be said is that any and all existing members that have registered for the forum prior to the 9th January 2017 will see absolutely no change to their access on the sites whatsoever. They will still have access to everything they already do and will still be able to interact as they currently do. The only slight change to the existing members will be the group name which will be proceeded with "Resident" so "Resident Members", "Resident Power User" and so on. This change will only affect new members signing up to the forum from the 9th January 2017 onwards. So the new groups will be as follows; Guests Same as now, non signed up visitors to the site and whilst they will be able to see an area exists they won't always be able to view the content of some of them. There will be no change to the access level of the guest membership group. New Bronze Member This will be the new group that members register on the forums as and remains the same as our current New Members group in that their first 5 posts will need to be approved. They will only have read access to force specific and recruitment areas so they will be able to view topics and the posts. After the first 5 are approved they will be moved to the Bronze Member Group. Whilst a New Member they will have the same user badge as Bronze Member. Bronze Member This is a new group although it is pretty much the same as the current Members group, however, they will have read only access to the force specific and recruitment areas so they will be able to view topics and posts but not reply or create topics in these areas. Its essentially the same as New Bronze Member but without needing their posts to be approved. They will have the Bronze Member badge. Silver Member This is a brand new group and they will be able to access all areas and post freely in all of them. The membership plans available for silver membership will be £15 for one year of £36 for three years. What Extras Do I Get? Ok you're right .. you are not making a donation so you expect something in return right? No problem. This membership package allows you full access to all features across the forum, increases your permissions across the forum to allow you to do all those extra bits that a standard member can't do.

It will not give them access to the VIP areas. The recruitment passes can be purchased for 1 month (£3.95) and 3 months (£7.95) which can be renewed.
