Refreshed, easy-to-navigate website launched
Following feedback from website visitors and new national guidance, the Police and Crime Commissioner’s website has been re-designed to make it easier to use and navigate.

Re-launched this week, the website retains the same domain name (www.hertscommissioner.org) and content but allows users to navigate quickly to relevant information such as the Commissioner’s statutory responsibilities, finances and expenses, victim services commissioning, crime-fighting and victim-focussed campaigns and progress against his Police and Crime Plan (Everybody’s Business, which is the main strategy that drives policing and community safety work across Hertfordshire).

A new section called ‘Your Area’ allows website visitors to find their neighbourhood police team, see local crime statistics, find out about their local Community Safety Partnership and see what the Commissioner has been doing where they live.

Other sections include police and community safety-related volunteering opportunities, the role and details of the independent Police and Crime Panel that supports and scrutinises the PCC’s work, important decisions made in formal meetings and links to the Commissioner’s social media accounts.

Commissioner David Lloyd said: “I am delighted with this new-look website which aims to make it easier to see what my office is doing, why we are doing it and how much it all costs.  You can also see how well my Police and Crime Commissioner role is working to help keep Hertfordshire such a safe place and how we are meeting the needs of victims of crime.”

The re-design follows government guidelines for making web pages and public services simpler, clearer and easier to use. 

The website cost just £2,500 to re-develop and enables the Commissioner to showcase the work of his team as well as offer transparency - allowing members of the public to fully scrutinise his role and spending, and to ensure that he is representing their views and needs.

The re-design was carried out by Hertfordshire-based web designers.
