In March 2012, Business Information Review published an article on the use of blogs by members of the UK police force. In Venting, Joining and Educating, the authors explored the motivations of serving police officers when joining the ‘blogosphere’.
One police blog author has signed a publishing deal with an imprint of Harper Collins. Confessions of a Police Constable will join the same publishing list as other ‘confession’ titles. One of these, Confessions of a GP, has already sold a quarter of a million copies in e-book form.
