Chatham-Kent police get new and improved website

At Tuesday’s police board meeting constable Renee Cowell announced the new Chatham-Kent police service’s website. To help make Ontario businesses accessible to people with disabilities, the Ontario ministry of economic development and infrastructure has enacted accessibility standards. This is to make their website more accessible for all people.

“We have gotten rid of that old boxy website” said Const. Cowell while showing off some of the new features of the website. One of the features that was most demanded is online police clearance checks to save local residents a trip to the police station if they choose to use that feature. They have also improved the websites connection with social media websites like Facebook with share and like options, as well as live feeds from the CKPS twitter account.

To further increase the accessibility of the website it includes a language option powered by Google Translate which gives the option to change the website to everything from Afrikaans to Zulu. For the visually impaired there is an option to enlarge text to allow easier reading.

The new website can be found at
