As you may or may not have noticed, PoliceLink has made a new, concentrated effort to update our community with the latest law enforcement news hitting the media. Instead of updating our news channel once in the morning, we have a dedicated team scouring the new to provide you with up-to-date information all day long.


What are your thoughts about the change? Do you like seeing new stories every time you log on?


Let us know your thoughts!


Your Friendly Neighborhood PoliceLink Editor,

Kendra

I do like the updated news and new articles!! As long as we can keep getting to some of the older stories, I think we'll be good!


Some of the "Advertisements" can go, though (I know, wishful thinking).

Glad you're happy with the coverage Tim! And yes, you can absolutely still access the older stories we've posted, though we do cycle what appears on the homepage througout the day. Simply click on News --> Browse News and you can filter by most recent, recently popular, etc.


As for advertising...wishful thinking indeed

I enjoy the updated news feature as well.  My compliments to all the efforts the PL staff puts in to this site.  I love it here!

He's the trouble-maker here in the PL classroom.  We all like the guy but I think we need to move his desk up to the front of the class next to Sarge!  J/K BSL!!!

Good to see more stories.  PL News relies too much on sensationalism.  Over-use of stock photos - often misleading content.

Not a research issue.  I think most LEO's here will agree more stories in PL News is a good thing  - depending on content.  Reader's comments reflect a general discontent.


Even the rank novice taking the most cursory view of PL Features, among them News, can quickly confirm the wisdom of bringing seasoned LEO perspectives to The Team, Kendra.   I expect your work here as a sounding board will profit from that.

One thing I have noticed about some of the news stories here on PL is misleading or unclear headlines.  Often times I have clicked on a story because of the headline and then realized that the headline is completely incorrect after I read the article.  I don't know if this is a PL issue or if the headlines are assigned from another source and simply not screened.

I am sick of reading all the LEO gone bad stories and rarely any of the good things. I know the editors here have nothing to do with what is in "print."  Maybe finding more than one positve police story for the hundreds of negative would put Ranger719 and BSL in a better mood.  hehe

GREAT AWESOME FANTASTIC job Kendra and to all the PL staff.   I agree with the misleading titles - but sometimes we have to differentiate between the news feeds and the user submitted news articles.  Also duplicate postings - I know I've posted the same article and then it shows up in the news feeds (sorry).  And as far as the negatives - I firmly believe that is the media's fault - instead of saying " Cops subdue unruly child"  a lot of times they should say "unruly child disrupts entire school - police called"  it's all in the way it's presented.   And they don't always shed LE in a positive light. All for the sake of selling headlines and papers, I suppose.

This.


However, editor has EVERYTHING to do with story selection and lay-out.  When it comes to slant and sensationalism, PL News from Front Page 'on back' tells the whole story.  No wonder LEOs here are pissed off.


I'm not tacking a smiley face onto ANYONE'S res.

I'm pretty sure that wouldn't work. In fact, he'd probably just corrupt the little old lady that's teaching the class.
