The New York State Police embrace social media

November 28, 2012

ALBANY, NY — New York residents 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 newly created official NYS Police Facebook page allows 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.
