North Yorkshire Police and the North Yorkshire Police Authority (NYPA) have begun work on an improved, user-friendly, customer focused and fully accessible website.

The new website is expected to go live in November 2008, and Gina Allen, development project coordinator for NYPA, explained: “We are looking for a new website that allows members of our communities to easily access information that can be updated at a click of a button, in-house or in-situ.

“With the new system, we will be able to devolve responsibility for updates down to areas and Safer Neighbourhoods teams, meaning that information is written by the people on the front line who really understand local priorities and needs and can update and feedback to their communities in real-time.”

Chief Superintendent Tim Madgwick, chief of staff for North Yorkshire Police, added: “This exciting joint website development gives us the opportunity to meet some of the consultation challenges set out in the recently published Green Paper. The website will help communities understand the reality of what is happening in their own area.”

The website redesign is being carried out in conjunction with GOSS, specialists in enterprise information management.

GOSS’s web content management system, iCM, allows multiple contributors to upload content, such as Microsoft Word and Excel documents, quickly and easily with the minimum of training. It also offers forum and blog management and full WYSIWYG editing.
