British Police Blog Interviews CopsAlive Editor

A Police Sergeant from the U.K. who writes an English police blog called “The Twining Chronicles” has interviewed John Marx our Editor in Chief.

The interview may shed a light on the differences and similarities between policing in the USA and policing in the United Kingdom, but the bottom line is that law enforcement officers are the same everywhere.

About Editor

John Marx was a Police Officer for twenty-three years and served as a Hostage Negotiator for nineteen of those years. He worked as a patrol officer, media liaison officer, crime prevention officer and burglary detective. Also during his career he served as administrator of his city's Community Oriented Governance initiative through the police department's Community Policing project. Today John combines his skills to consult with businesses about improving both their security and their customer service programs. John retired from law enforcement in 2002. When one of his friends, also a former police officer, committed suicide at age 38, John was devastated and began researching the problems that stress creates for police officers. He decided he needed to do something to help change those problems and he wanted to give something back to the profession that gave him so much. He started a project that has evolved into CopsAlive.com. Put simply, the mission of CopsAlive is to save the lives of those who save lives! CopsAlive.com gathers information, strategies and tools to help law enforcement professionals plan for happy, healthy and successful careers, relationships and lives.

  1. Hey, I don’t know if you’ve seen this, but John Walsh from America’s Most Wanted was recently interviewed about how the show has begun using its website to aid it in catching criminals — It’s a good piece on how people can use online crowdsourcing to solve crimes:

    Anyway, I thought this was something you and your readers would find interesting (I do some consulting for the broadband industry).

    take care,
