Police will soon have a social media network all to themselves.

BlueLine is being touted as a site where officers can share their expertise, insight and information securely through video, instant messaging and videoconferencing.

Users will have to be accredited members of law enforcement.

The site is the brainchild of former New York Police Commissioner Bill Bratton, who says police officers need a safe network to share information with each other.

BlueLine is currently being beta-tested within the Los Angeles Police and LA County Sheriff's Departments, and the University of Southern California's campus police.

It is set to officially launch in late October.
