Police and Crime Commissioner (West Yorkshire) : Website live after election of first PCC

posted on 10 December 2012 by alice thomas

Digital Design are pleased to announce that their first website designed especially for the new office of Police and Crime Commissioner, has gone live to the public. 

The new West Yorkshire Police and Crime Commissioner, Mark Burns-Williamson took office on the 22nd November 2012, (after the inaugural PCC elections of the 15th November) and the website (www.westyorkshire-pcc.gov.uk) went live soon after. 

Digital Design developed the website (using content management system, Umbraco), to be totally customisable, meaning that the West Yorkshire PCC team can update the website themselves, without seeking assistance from Digital Design whenever they need to make changes. 

Digital Design's template Police and Crime Commissioner website includes standard areas for information on;

  • The PCC's Calendar and Diary
  • A 'My Neighbourhood' feature, with the ability to customise news and events to a specific policing division
  • Links with social media networks such as Twitter and Facebook


With other features such as quick polls and online forms earmarked for the future.

Alongside these standard areas, the West Yorkshire PCC team have chosen to populate the website with information about the role of the PCC, staff within the office of the PCC and links to useful sites and information. 

The website also contains links to CrimeStoppers, Police.UK and the 'Ask' the Police and Crime Commissioner website.

The PCC website continues Digital Design and PDMS' track record working with Criminal Justice organisations.
