Police Department Website is Unlike Any Other - as part of the news series by GeoBeats.
Have you ever visited your town’s police department website? Most of them look slightly boring and outdated.
The Milwaukee Police Department’s newest webpage is far from boring. MilwaukeePoliceNews.com has been called the “first of its kind” for a police agency.
The interface is very easy to use and it screams new technology. Arguably, the best part is the most wanted list. No grainy pictures here. Crystal clear images and details fill the screen.
Created by Cramer-Krasselt, a spokesperson states, “99% of government websites are no pleasure to visit or navigate, with key information scattered or buried “
However, the new site offers 3D pictures and the goal is to “engage and empower citizens in the ongoing efforts to create a safer and more secure city.”
The website features true police stories, information and tributes for fallen heroes, statistics on confiscated firearms, crime rates and robber arrests.
Hopefully Milwaukee is paving the way for other police departments to update their websites and improve visitors browsing experience.
