A New Year and a New Website

By Joelyn Hansen

As we get closer to the New Year I’ve had the opportunity to look back at everything the police department has been involved in throughout 2013. This includes the many different projects completed and accomplished.

It’s fitting that the department now unveils its latest completed project — the new and updated website design — as we get ready to begin a brand new


year. Months in the making this site is thanks to the tireless efforts and technical know-how of IFPD Officers Kyle Christopherson, Ryan Nelson (who spear-headed the project before leaving the department in September) and Jared Mendenhall.

The vision was a collaborative effort between myself, the chief and these three officers to really bring the department into the 21st Century. The website now gives the department a more professional and polished look and gives residents a one-stop site where they can access multiple resources, information and news faster and easier. It’s really a win-win for both the department and the community.

For months I’ve been anxiously awaiting the unveil because I am pleased with the finished product and I think a majority of the community will be too!

I invite everyone to explore the site. Find out more about our department, learn about crime prevention, read about the latest department news, sign up for CodeRed and most importantly stay connected to the IFPD.  I also invite you to continually come back again and again as we continue to promote and update information.
