Simple Email services for Law Enforcement
AlaCop.us was developed by Phillip Calvert, an Alabama law enforcement officer while completing his undergraduate degree at Faulkner University in Montgomery, Alabama. A combination of the need for law enforcement officers to communicate along with an interest in the technology of the Internet drove the development of this project. Many law enforcement officers were learning the new technology and maintained their personal email accounts, while most law enforcement agencies did not provide such technology or communication potential. The concepts came together and AlaCop.us became a tool for communication and support among the law enforcement community. The ultimate goal of AlaCop.us is to provide our service to all law enforcement officers who wish to participate, provide support to law enforcement officers and their families, and to promote inter-personal communications among law enforcement officers as a means to develop a more professional law enforcement community.
AlaCop.us is a free service provided to Law Enforcement Officers Worldwide with an emphasis on Alabama Law Enforcement issues. AlaCop.us provides an email listserver that allows Law Enforcement Officers to communicate through their personal or department Email accounts. Participation in the AlaCop.us listserver group allows an officer to send a message to one address where it will be forwarded to all other members of AlaCop.us. Communication is the key to success for the Law Enforcement Community and AlaCop.us is proud to be a part of the evolution into the computer age for hundreds of officers. It is the mission of AlaCop.us to allow Law Enforcement Officers to discuss local issues and share local information that may not be easily accomplished through "official" communication avenues.

Our email listserver service is best described as an email locker-room for law enforcement participants. Our service can be helpful to Law Enforcement Officers who may need information for research or investigations. Requests for information on suspects, ideas, or investigations can be available worldwide within a few hours. Our service can be helpful to Law Enforcement Officers who may need to interact with other Law Enforcement Officers developing personal and professional contacts. Our service can be helpful to Law Enforcement Officers who may need to just blow off some steam or convey their feelings and frustrations to others who will understand what they are going through. Generally, this service provides a meeting place where officers can communicate with others who can offer assistance, information, and sometimes criticism based on their background and experience.
