Welcome to the first Ed Jones Co., In The News column. This new site feature will present timely information and some humorous stories about badges and the bodies behind them. Look forward to tid-bits of advice, roll-out of new product designs, and feature articles that will make your job on the street or behind a desk a little bit easier.

Sign up for our In The News email service and look for special offers only available to subscribing customers, including: discounts, fast-track delivery on selected models, and even some FREE stuff. Please be assured, all contact information will be kept strictly confidential and not shared, sold, bartered, traded or otherwise released to anyone, anywhere for any reason, period.

To start, expect In the News every couple of months. The article will be a plain text, non-graphic, no-banner-ad email that is fast loading and concise, requiring little time to read. Every article will also be archived here at for future reference. However, be sure to check the special before hitting the delete button, as that stuff won't be in the archived version.

If there is a topic area you would like to see featured or have an article to present, please forward the suggestion or article copy to We encourage contributions from anyone that has expertise or valuable experience that will benefit other organizations. Chances are it will probably be helpful for many others. Also, don't worry about grammar; we'll fix it before publishing.

Thanks for your interest. We look forward to seeing you here again soon.
