Every day, we share POLICE content with you in a multitude of ways. And because our print magazine reaches you only once a month, we've set up plenty of other social channels for you to interact with the best law enforcement content on the web.

Have you noticed that Google+ has moved from the outer frontiers to become more of a part of the conversation? We've begun adding selected articles, so just add the PoliceMag Google+ page to your circles. If you'd like an email, when we post an update, be sure to add us to your "Following" circle.

If you're not Google+ fan, there are plenty of other ways to reach us. We've become much more active on Twitter. Our page just crossed 5,000 followers, so stop by @policemag to join the conversation. View this feed for a quick update of recent tweets.

We're also excited about the latest Flipboard update that allows publishers to set up custom magazines and curate law enforcement content from around the Web, including tweets and other social streams. We've set up a Flipboard POLICE Magazine for your tablet and other mobile devices.

We've also updated the PoliceMag YouTube channel, where you can view training lessons, product updates, and Officer of the Month profiles.

Maybe photo-sharing is more your thing. We have plenty of boards on Pinterest, where we've found that you like sharing police dogs and inspirational law enforcement messages.

Facebook remains a standard, so if you haven't "liked" us, please head to the PoliceMag Facebook page.

Perhaps you'd like to expand your professional network. Visit the PoliceMag LinkedIn page to interact with other officers and share resources.

1-800-BOARDUP Provides Emergency Structural Stabilization Services to Victims in Ferguson
1-800-BOARDUP serves public safety departments and insurance claims professionals all across North America. Although most of our structural stabilization work is post-incident, we have seen a spike in boardup service requests in the St. Louis area for customers who are hoping for the best, but are planning for the worst. In preparation for what could be very a chaotic situation, many St. Louis area residents and business owners have engaged our local 1-800-BOARDUP recovery team to professionally secure their structures in a manner that is similar to what we go through prior to an east coast hurricane.
We are committed to helping people in need. That is why we exist. However sometimes we are asked to put our teams in harms-way by going into dangerous areas and that is something we just cannot do. We will only be able to send our recovery teams into hot zones with a police escort while we are work
