Site Features Wide Range of both Public and Secure Police Video Content
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – PoliceOne.com, the leading online information and training resource for law enforcement, today announced that it has launched BLUtube (www.BLUtube.com), the first online video community for police officers and departments nationwide.
BLUtube offers members of the law enforcement community a secure, interactive environment in which to view and upload an unlimited number of industry-focused videos. Similar to PoliceOne.com, BLUtube includes law enforcement-only sections with video tips, roll call training segments and sensitive in-car videos.
BLUtube also includes a variety of community features, including the ability to create video playlists, subscribe to other members’ content, and rate or comment on videos. BLUtube’s featured topics cover a wide range of law enforcement subjects, from training clips and product demonstrations to humorous outtakes caught on dashcam.
BLUtube’s videos are fully integrated into relevant content sections of PoliceOne.com. The more than 600,000 unique visitors that come to PoliceOne.com each month will be able to view BLUtube videos through site topics, product categories and the newly remodeled PoliceOne Videos section.
“At PoliceOne, we recognize that online video will play a major role in enhancing the next generation of public safety Web site portals and increasing their importance as mission critical resources,” said Alex Ford, CEO of PoliceOne. “BLUtube combines the latest online video technology with our well-established law enforcement resources and expertise, including our roster of leading industry experts and our proprietary law enforcement verification process.

Over the next several months, PoliceOne will continue to enhance its range of video offerings with additional video-related features on both PoliceOne.com and BLUtube. Projects include P1TV, an interactive television station with original programming by PoliceOne experts, and PoliceOne Virtual Trade Shows, video segments filmed at various industry conferences and events that highlight the latest products and services from PoliceOne sponsors.
