The OPP launched a re-designed and interactive website yesterday as part of its ongoing commitment to providing public access to OPP information, investigations, and events.
To be inclusive of people with disabilities, the website was designed to meet current accessibility standards.
Increasingly, websites are the first point of contact between an organization and the public.
Some of the advanced features of the OPP’s website include content-focused banners that will draw attention to current issues, topics, and events of general public interest.
The “Crime Files” section, meanwhile, provides access to a database of OPP unsolved or cold cases, and invites information or tips that may lead to the resolution of cases.
This feature includes Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB) unsolved investigations, OPP most wanted criminals, Repeat Offender Parole Enforcement (ROPE) most wanted, missing persons, and OPP reward posters.
The “News” section will feature information relating to Amber Alerts, corporate media releases, OPP events, a media gallery, news media kits, and feature archives.
In “Your Local OPP,” the “Detachment Finder” will make it easy to locate any of the 165 detachments across the province (just enter your address in the finder field to locate your closest OPP detachment).
In the “How Do I?” section you will find some of the most commonly-asked questions about the OPP and the “Focus” section will highlight attention to special OPP programs and initiatives.
The “Careers” section will provide information on OPP career opportunities for uniform, civilian, and volunteer positions.
Finally, the “Contact us” feature will provide the public with the ability to locate frequently-called OPP phone numbers to provide feedback and information to the OPP.
In related new, the OPP Museum also is launching a new web page as a standalone component of the re-design effort.
The OPP Museum’s new website—located at www.opp.ca/museum/index.php—presents a wealth of information on featured exhibits and resources, including detailed photographs of museum artifacts.
For more information, and to view the re-designed website, visit www.opp.ca
The OPP invites the public to visit the website often as information is frequently updated.
