Visit the online version of the California Peace Officer e-magazine
We are excited to debut the new, online version of the California Peace Officer
e-magazine. In summer 2008, the California Peace Officers' Association legacy magazine, which had not been produced since 1995, was republished. The vision for the magazine was to publish topical and timely articles that addressed current issues and best practices for California's leadership in the law enforcement profession. Nearly five years later, and with much acclaim from its readers, the magazine is keeping with the movement toward the more immediate and accessible vehicle of online availability and is morphing to an online publication. The vision is to make the online version of California Peace Officer
the place to come to by law enforcement leaders, supervisors, and even officers, who want to stay on the leading edge of current issues and best practices of the profession.
Please let us know what you think! We want to make this a useful tool for law enforcement.
Regarding editorial guidelines for authors, we ask that articles be submitted on time in a Microsoft Word document. Articles usually range from 800 - 1,200 words in length but can exceed if needed. CPOA and the editor review the articles closely for content and may edit them for space and grammar.
We use Associated Press as the grammar style book, particularly when it comes to punctuation. Each author will be asked to complete and return the CPOA consent and release form prior to the posting of the article and to include a two-sentence biography that includes their title, place of employment and contact information (phone number and email address) at the end of their article. Our readers may wish to contact the authors.
Regarding images, please send a headshot of yourself as a separate file with the article. Images must be high resolution (300 dpi) and saved as a jpeg or tiff file. When taking pictures using a digital camera, please ensure that the setting on the camera is set to the finest or best setting.
Please send articles to: Tricia Schomus, Editor of the California Peace Officer
, 555 Capitol Mall, Suite 1495, Sacramento, CA 95814.
