We have a vibrant company culture comprised of talented individuals driven by shared values and working tirelessly in support of our mission: to use digital media and technology to revolutionize the way in which local governments and public safety organizations serve and protect our communities.
We've worked hard to create an open, interactive environment full of people who are both extremely talented and fun to be around. We balance hard work with regular company events and activities, from quarterly team building outings and our annual offsite retreat to unofficial clubs and activities such as grilled cheese contests, pirate-themed yacht voyages and the legendary "PD in the Park Olympics".
We believe that recognition is important, and each month we award the Pax Romana to an employee who goes above and beyond to get the job done. We recognize employees on their 5-year anniversaries with personalized bobble heads, which are coveted collector's items around our offices. Also, employees each receive two bonus days off each year: for our founding anniversary, ‘Praetorian Day’, and for their birthday.
Having employees with varied backgrounds and dynamic personalities creates an atmosphere of mutual respect and promotes the sharing of ideas and thoughts on how to improve our business.
Our team draws inspiration from our shared values, which were formed based on input from our team during a recent company offsite.
OUR MOTTO: Warrior Spirit
Our motto and defining characteristic, ‘Warrior Spirit’ epitomizes how we approach our mission and the day-to-day challenge of building an amazing company and improving both personally and professionally. It also reflects the mindset of those in the communities we serve, who must approach their jobs with vigilance, vigor and intensity.
OUR VALUES: These three values drive our success as a business and fuel us as we execute upon our mission.
- Serve - We are mission-driven, serving those who keep our communities safe and running efficiently. We take inspiration from our audience and use it as fuel to wake up every day and push forward with excellence. We provide exceptional service to all of our customers – both internal and external – whether they be advertisers, departments, municipalities or colleagues.
- Empower - We strive to create a culture and environment that empowers us to pursue excellence and thrive both as individuals and as a company. We treat colleagues and customers alike with respect and provide the support, help and tools to enable their success and growth. We are patient and empathetic knowing that we can accomplish far more as team than as a group of individuals.
- Grow - We grow with purpose as professionals, as teams and as a company, striving to create a $100MM revenue business. Growth requires innovation, creativity, openness to opportunities, willingness to take risks and dedication in tackling challenges. It’s about having a growth mindset and waking up every morning seeking to improve both as individuals and as a company.
I think the thing I enjoy about Praetorian the most is really the people - and just how we really care about what we do and create for our audience. Having a national impact on a local level is something very meaningful to me.

From a learning division start-up to enterprise development eight years later, I’m grateful to put my name on Praetorian training innovation proven to be invaluable for thousands of public safety agencies.
Nicole - Director, Enterprise Business Development
It’s rare to find an organization that is equally dedicated to the success of both its customers AND its employees. Praetorians leadership culture continues to enable and empower me to exceed my goals both personally and professionally.

Every day I am able to recognize the outstanding work of public safety personnel to serve their communities and deliver them news and training to do their jobs more safely and effectively.
