With the goal to “provide transparency between our office and the public,” as stated by St. Clair County Sheriff Billy Murray, the department has launched a new responsive website.
The site, www.stclairsheriff.org, was launched on May 14 and now features alerts, press releases, most wanted listings, social media links and a jail roster.
“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,” said Murray in a press release. “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.”
The department will also add an outstanding warrants list to the site and plans launch a mobile app that can be downloaded for free.
“Posting information on the Website improves the efficiency of the Sheriff’s Office by reducing the number of inquiry calls handled by our office,” Murray commented. “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 view Most Wanted individuals, how to view the recent inmate bookings and releases, and where to find the latest news and updates from the Sheriff’s Office. We believe the Website is a huge benefit to the Sheriff’s Office and the residents of St. Clair County as well.”
The site was developed by Brooks Jeffrey Marketing, Inc., an app, website and marketing company based in Mountain Home, Ark.
