What you were reading: Top 10 blogs of 2010

You can check out the Top 10 stories here. I also broke it down into sectors and wrote a small synopsis and listed the Top 5 stories for each sector. Check out what was hot in educational security, retail security/loss prevention, aviation security, and municipal security/port security/public transportation.

So to go along with that theme, I decided to post the Top 10 blogs from this year. Below is a list that I think you’ll find quite interesting:
