The Honolulu Police Department announced Thursday it has launched a revamped website.
HPD has employed professionals to assist in making the site more user-friendly and streamlined to help users find what they are looking for.
The website now has a late-breaking news crawler, which was used Wednesday when police were looking for escaped murder suspect, Teddy Munet.
The site will also connect with HPD’s Facebook page.
Police highlights — not only felonies, but smaller crimes that occur daily such as thefts — are being featured to show the community what officers do to keep the community safe, said police Capt. Andrew Lum.
Community policing information by community, contact information, including phone numbers and e-mail capabilities can also be found on the site to allow HPD to connect with the community.
Users can also watch informational videos that inform the public about the police department.
Go to www.honolulupd.org to access the site.
