Over more than two decades, Lexipol has served first responders and local government officials. What began as separate efforts—a website for police officers and a customized policy manual for law enforcement agencies—came together to form an entire risk management solution for public safety and local government. As we expanded beyond law enforcement to serve fire, EMS, corrections, and city and state government, we added services such as such as online training, grants and an electronic policy management platform.
Today, we serve more than 2 million public safety and government professionals with a range of informational and technological solutions to meet the challenges facing these dynamic industries. But through all the changes, our mission remains the same:
To use content and technology to create safer communities and empower the men, women and organizations that serve them.
Key Dates in Lexipol History
Recognizing the need for customized policy manuals for law enforcement, Bruce Praet and Geoff Spalding develop the original Law Enforcement manual, using the Fullerton (CA) Police Department as a model.
With the dotcom craze in full swing, entrepreneur Alex Ford realizes there is no online resource to inform, educate and connect police officers. He launches PoliceOne.com and founds the Praetorian Group.
Lexipol is founded as a partnership between Bruce Praet and Gordon Graham. Daily Training Bulletins are added to the Lexipol subscription.
Praetorian has expanded to add FireRescue1 and EMS1. Lexipol has moved into corporate headquarters in Southern California and launches the immensely popular Gordon Graham’s “Today’s Tip.”
Both companies continue to expand their offerings, with Lexipol now providing policies to fire departments and correctional facilities and Praetorian launching CorrectionsOne and EfficientGov.
Lexipol merges with Praetorian Digital, creating one comprehensive risk management solution for public safety and local government. The company retains the name Lexipol and is managed by the private equity firm Riverside.
