2009: The Public Information Office (PIO) of the State Police launched a website to improve the efficiency in which Public Information Officers (PIOs) produce and distribute news releases. This feature allows the media to search and electronically extract news releases. The service also has an email subscription feature that notifies registered users when new information is available. During the first year of operations, 920 media professionals registered as media users. A total of 6,277 press releases were drafted and posted to the online newsroom in 2009.
