Could do better…

Posted in The Job - Comment by 200

I know I’ve mentioned poor quality web design in relation to Police Blogs in the past, it’s one of my little bugbears.

I was minded to check out the British Police Memorial pages to see if PC Jon Henry had been added (he has) and I was struck that the website – The Police Roll of Honour Trust – still looks like it was designed in the mid 90s. The actual Roll of Honour which lists officers who have either died or been killed on duty hasn’t changed style-wise for years and they still don’t have the facility for people to leave individual thoughts on a dedicated page for each officer (except for a woefully amateurish guestbook where all officers’ comments are mixed up). I can’t help but wonder if this is a fitting way to remember our fallen colleagues.

Compare it with the American  – Officer Down Memorial Page – which still looks fresh, clear & sharp, is fully searchable and every officer has their own ‘Reflections Page’ where family friends, colleagues & others can leave memories or comments about the fallen officer.

I know the UK site is the work of a small number of individuals who probably maintain the site in their own time but come on, Police Roll of Honour Trust, let’s have a site that is properly fitting to the memories of our brothers & sisters!

    I wouldn’t be too upset about the last comment. That “person” is doing this on a lot of the police bloggs.
    Especially policeandraceinit. (blackinblue)
    It is disgusting and I want to see the day HE needs help!
    When that day comes may I suggest that you all “just walk away” and leave him!!
    However I don’t see why we should have to read that sick mans comments.
    Lets get him guys…..we surely can find out who he is.

    On fathers day

    I am proud of my father who did the Job for 30 years plus extension and received his long service medal

    I am posting as I agree with your comments. Dad served under Gerry Richardson G.C.in 1970 and he still wells up after a few pints on a saturday afternoon in the pub if we talk about it.

    You have the memorial in london but you should have an official website

    Good men must die for justice and l aw but death cannot kill their names.
