The Pine Bluff Police Department launched a new responsive website on 5/31/23 where residents can find the latest information regarding the operations of the Police Department as well as locate area sex offenders.
The new website will serve as an information resource for the public and assist with community policing efforts. The responsive design allows site visitors to access the information they want and need from any device with simple, flexible navigation.
The new website, https://www.pbpd.org, features press releases, messages from Chief Richardson, pages on the Departments & Resources of the Police Department, as well as a link to submit crime tips via email, which includes photo and video submissions.
“Our goal with the website is to provide transparency between our office and the public. We want the public to understand how this office serves the community, residents, and visitors. We want our community members to have the information they need, when they need it. The responsive design allows users to quickly and conveniently access the website information on the device of their choice: desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone. In addition, the responsive website features a site search, which makes finding specific information much faster and easier for the site visitor,” said Chief Richardson.
Other features of the website include:
Alert Notifications – allows the public to sign up for alert notifications from the Sheriff’s Office via email – including sex offender notifications, press releases, messages from the Chief, and most wanted updates.
Interactive Crime Map – allows the public to view locations where crimes have occurred in Pine Bluff. The crime map displays icon pinpoints for up to 17 specific crime types. Visitors may choose to view all crime types or select to view by specific crime type or year.
Most Wanted Listings – allows the public to view photos and descriptions of wanted individuals.
Press Releases – allows the public to view a list in date order, sorted by year, of press release and news items posted by the Police Department.
Sex Offenders – allows the public to view photos and information for sex offenders living in the county. The interactive map feature on the website allows the public to view sex offender locations on the map, view offender photos and profile information about the offenses.
Social Media Links – allows the public to follow the Pine Bluff Police Department on Facebook.
“Posting information on the website improves the efficiency of the Police Department by reducing the number of inquiry calls handled by our office. This tool allows us to devote more resources to the safety and security of our residents. Our intent is for every county resident to visit the site and become familiar with how to locate sex offenders, how to submit a crime tip and where to find the latest news and updates from the Police Department. We believe the website is a huge benefit to the Police Department and the residents of Pine Bluff as well,” said Chief Richardson
