Law Enforcement Website Design
Redding, California’s local police department had been using an older website for years and its age was showing. While it was updated regularly, the format was hard to navigate and the design smelled like the ’90s. The team at Optimize Worldwide decided to give back to the community by volunteering our time and talent to build a more impressive website and partnered with a local PR firm to do some publicity for the department.
In order to modernize ReddingPolice.org, we started with a responsive WordPress theme, imported the old content from the site, and built in some new features. The site allows visitors to see the area’s most wanted criminals, read press releases about missing persons and other criminal activity, as well as see regularly updated crime statistics for city neighborhoods. Users can report a crime via the web interface and download forms relevant to their situation.
