SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – PoliceOne.com, the leading online information and training resource for law enforcement, today announced that its network of sites is now visited by more than three quarters of a million unique users each month, continuing its growth as the number one news and information Web site in the law enforcement market.
In addition to the unique user milestone, PoliceOne experienced significant growth across the board in 2007, tallying a 42% increase in overall site traffic and a 53% growth in membership. PoliceOne also continued to expand its industry-leading community of law enforcement professionals. The number of registered PoliceOne members has surpassed 200,000, an increase of over 72,000 registered members from January 2007 to December 2007. In addition, the number of subscribers to the PoliceOne eNewsletter jumped to over 120,000 by the end of 2007, an increase of 35,000 over the course of the year.
“2007 was an exceptional year for PoliceOne in terms of traffic growth, member development and site launches,” said Alex Ford, CEO of PoliceOne. “Coupled with the launch of BLUtube.com and PoliceGrantsHelp.com, we made significant strides in reinforcing our position as the unquestioned leader in online content and resources for law enforcement. As we begin 2008, we continue to strive to provide the law enforcement community with the most comprehensive array of resources to stay safe and be more effective on the street.”
In late 2007, PoliceOne launched BLUtube.com, the first online video community for law enforcement. BLUtube offers members of the law enforcement community a secure, interactive environment in which to view and upload an unlimited number of industry-focused videos. Similar to PoliceOne.com, BLUtube includes law enforcement-only sections with video tips, roll call training segments and sensitive in-car videos. Since its launch, BLUtube.com has registered more than three million video views and greater than 1,000 video uploads. In the coming months, PoliceOne will also be launching PoliceOneTV, a video section showcasing completely original segments related to officer survival, training, exercise, product research and much more.
In addition, PoliceOne recently launched PoliceGrantsHelp.com in partnership with Cisco Systems. The site is fast becoming the leading resource for grants information, resources and expertise to the law enforcement community. PoliceGrantsHelp.com provides a comprehensive resource for grants information and assistance in one location. The site features an extensive police grants database with a library of information covering federal, state, local and corporate opportunities.
