SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- The final stages are nearly completed for the launch of a law enforcement social media network designed exclusively for the men and women in blue.

Created by former high-profile New York City police commissioner and Los Angeles Police Chief Bill Bratton, BlueLine is being touted as a site where officers can share their expertise, insight and information securely through video, instant messaging, videoconferencing and screen share capabilities.

Bratton said BlueLine was conceived earlier this year and created by his New York-based startup, Bratton Technologies. It's currently being beta-tested among 100 officers within the Los Angeles Police and L.A. County Sheriff's departments and the University of Southern California's campus police.

Bratton says the network is scheduled to launch during the International Association of Police Chiefs' annual conference in Philadelphia in October.
