The New York State Police will be able to better serve the people of New York State through social media.
New Yorkers can now "like" the State Police on Facebook and "follow" NYSP on Twitter.
"We are now able to serve New Yorkers on a whole new level," Superintendent Joseph D'Amico said. "Facebook and Twitter give us a chance to directly communicate and interact with the people we serve every day. Not only will we be able to get important public safety information out quickly, but New Yorkers will also get to know more about the work our Troopers do in their communities."
The official NYS Police Facebook page will allow the public to learn more about the State Police, its specialty units and members. The State Police will also be posting important public safety information on crime prevention, traffic safety, missing persons and cold cases as well as information on how the public can help in investigations.
With the many state police interest groups on social media, make sure to look for "The official page of the New York State Police" while online.
Find the official page on Facebook www.facebook.com/nyspolice or Twitter @nyspolice.
