  • CopShare: The CopShare list serve was created in an effort to eliminate "reinventing the wheel." When searching for information about a particular topic, the most efficient method for gathering this information tends to be obtaining information that has previously been collected by someone else. Therefore, a law enforcement agency, for example, in need of a policy and procedure on a specific subject can request the policy information through CopShare by simply sending an e-mail to CopShare@cji.net with a brief explanation of the information needed. The information request will then be disseminated to all other list serve members with the anticipation of an informative response being generated. Once the information is received, it will then be forwarded back to the requesting agency. To learn more about CopShare, visit http://www.pathfinder.edu/CopShare%20index.htm. Requests for CopShare membership can be made on-line at the following web address: www.ncrle.net. Requests for CopShare membership can also be made by mail, e-mail or fax to Mr. Harold Stuart:
