Visitors don't get lost in the website's various pages and can quickly locate the information they are searching for or originally wanted.

Not only does the website adjust to the type of device a visitor is using, it's formated to allow for easy thumb scrolling.

Answers

Department personnel are able to refer callers and others to the FAQ section for commonly asked questions. 

Recruiting

The website has a dedicated page to attract potential job applicants, and includes information about the testing process and values wanted.

Mobile Optimized vs. Mobile Ready

There are varying terms when it comes to how a website looks when viewed from a phone or tablet. Terms like mobile friendly, mobile ready, and mobile responsive are just a few. 

Any quality web developer will make sure their websites can be viewed properly on a mobile device, hence the term "mobile responsive" or "mobile ready."

We Take It To The Next Level

The Rialto Police Department's website, and all of our websites, are "mobile optimized." This means we take the extra steps to literally re-design the mobile version of our customer's websites so they not only look good on mobile devices, but they logically work good as well.

For example, if you visit the home page of RialtoPD.com from a cell phone, you'll see where you have the ability to place a business call to the department, or call 911. However, if you visit the website from a desktop computer, you won't see this option.

Why Is A Mobile Site So Important?

First, more people visit websites from mobile devices than computers. This is attributed to the fact that people are on their devices constantly, and it is so easy to look up the information you need, rather than going over to a computer, logging in, and searching.

Second, Google has made it pretty clear they give preference to websites which have been optimized to enhance the mobile user's experience.

Last, we know that the department's reputation is based on people's first impression of them. This means that they have to look great anywhere they can be found online.

The mobile version of BBU

Mobile Optimized vs. Mobile Ready

There are varying terms when it comes to how a website looks when viewed from a phone or tablet. Terms like mobile friendly, mobile ready, and mobile responsive are just a few. 

Any quality web developer will make sure their websites can be viewed properly on a mobile device, hence the term "mobile responsive" or "mobile ready."

We Take It To The Next Level

The BBU website, and all of our websites, are "mobile optimized." These means we take the extra steps to literally re-design the mobile version of our customer's websites so they not only look good on mobile devices, but they logically work good as well.

For example, if you visit this page from a mobile phone, you won't see the mobile version of the BBU website we've embedded into this page for our visitors to literally browse. But if you visit this same page from a laptop, tablet, or desktop computer, you will see this feature.

Why Is This Important To BBU?

BBU's target audience are the youth in our communities. We all know in many communities, it's rare to find a teenager without a phone. 

Knowing this, BBU wanted to make sure their website offered an informative and appealing website to not only parents and educators, but the students as well. It's a no-brainer; BBU knows their audience.

From Mark Kling, Chief of Police

Our city is emerging as a leader in community policing. With the quick growth we are experiencing in our industrial and retail areas, as well as the building of new housing communities, I knew it was necessary to have a leading website.

I want the residents, business owners, and visitors of our city to be able to find our department online, and when they visit our website, I want them to be impressed with our professionalism. But even more importantly, I want them to feel connected to the men and women who are sworn to protect them. I want them to have the answers to their questions without ever having to pick up the phone.

In having a website which provides so much to our community, it also provides a relief in workload for my staff. With us providing news and information about significant community events and police responses to crimes, as well as being a resource of information, we are able to refer people to our website, and over time, hopefully reduce our phone calls and in-person lobby visitors who have questions. This will allow my team to channel their efforts to other areas of importance.

Working with the team at Law Enforcement Website Design has been truly amazing for me and my staff. They've taken work off of our plates, and because they are law enforcement, they know the exact wording, photos, videos, and content we need to accomplish our mission.
