SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. - PoliceOne.com, the leading online information and training resource for law enforcement, announced that it is now visited by 500,000 unique users each month, making it 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 2006, tallying a 17% increase in overall site traffic and a 31% growth in membership. PoliceOne.com also continued to expand its industry-leading community of law enforcement professionals. The number of registered PoliceOne members has surpassed 130,000, an increase of over 30,000 registered members from January 2006 to December 2006. In addition, the number of subscribers to the PoliceOne newsletter jumped to over 80,000 by the end of December, an increase of 20,000 over the course of the year.
“2006 was a banner year for PoliceOne in terms of traffic growth and site development,” said Alex Ford, CEO of PoliceOne. “Coupled with key acquisitions such as Police Marksman and Calibre Press, we made significant strides reinforcing our position as the unquestioned leader in the arena of officer safety and training. As we begin 2007, 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 2006, PoliceOne announced the acquisition of The Police Marksman, one of the nation’s leading law enforcement magazines. The Police Marksman is a prime source for the latest in law enforcement firearms and equipment, and provides officers with candid evaluations of their effectiveness and practicality.
The Police Marksman joins Calibre Press and the Street Survival Seminar under the PoliceOne umbrella, further reinforcing PoliceOne’s leadership position in the arena of officer safety and training and strengthening its ability to provide officers and trainers with the most up to date and effective methods of staying safe and informed.
