The Police website has been refreshed to provide even better access to our information and services.
Since the launch of www.police.govt.nz in 1999 there have been a number of changes, but this timely refresh is creating a more engaging and informative online experience.
“We need our website and other digital services to provide the most informative and engaging experiences possible,” says DCE Media and Communications Jane Archibald.
“We’ve redesigned the website to ensure our key services and essential safety information are front and centre, and shine a light on how all our people play a role in making New Zealand the safest country.”
The website refresh is one of a range of initiatives under way to enhance our engagement with and service to the public.
The homepage has been redesigned in the biggest change to the site’s look in at least 15 years. It aims to be intuitive, providing easier access to information and services.
The new look is reflected across the site. It isn’t a complete revamp of the website – some pages have changed little - but much of the most-visited information and advice has been updated.
There’s a new space bringing together Police news, including Ten One magazine stories, media releases and traffic alerts. The former news section has been rebuilt to ensure stories and content are easier to find, read and engage with – for the general public and the media.
A new section - How we’re tracking - uses user-friendly graphics to provide an overview of important Police data and give a snapshot of our performance.
The website is responsive, meaning it looks great whatever device you’re using. Other improvements based on public feedback and user insights will follow.
