Those who frequently traverse the internet and browse the websites of local institutions may have discovered that the Estevan Police Service's domain has been out of commission for awhile.
According to Police Chief Paul Ladouceur, this is for the better, as it will emerge bigger and much improved, with a variety of new tools and services for residents of Estevan.
"We want it to be more user friendly. With the last website, kudos goes to one of our members, as they did it themselves. They had some computer skills and they were happy to help us out. However, the software they were using was quite basic, and certainly not to the level that some of the professional website designers are using."
"What we're looking for in the new website is having that capability to connect with the community, and having accessibility through formatting. In other words, criminal record checks possibly being done online, being able to submit free information requests online, and things like that," he explained.
Ladouceur added that video capability, so members can put our safety messages and so forth, as well as multiple languages including Tagalog may be implemented.
They hope that the website will be up and running by February 2018.
