THE WORD blog is a conflation of two words: Web and log. It contains in its four letters a concise self-description: it is a log of thoughts and writing posted publicly on the World Wide Web. Shortened up to accommodate internet vernacular, Web log evolved into the word blog. Considered a spontaneous expression of instant thought, blogs allow writers to share insightful viewpoints quickly and succinctly. Our Law Enforcement blog, written by retired law enforcement professional Martin Schwartz and the Sunflower Systems’ Law Enforcement solutions team, shares timely viewpoints on the law enforcement and property management industry.
