As the governing authority of Calcasieu Parish, the Police Jury knew they needed to redevelop their website in order to keep up with today’s ever-evolving technology. The need to provide their 188,000 residents and thousands of visitors with online services and community updates led the Parish to partner with Vision Internet for a website overhaul. By incorporating Vision Internet’s user-friendly content management system, the employees of the Police Jury have found updating their website fun and easy.
The online forms component has greatly aided in the usefulness of the website. Residents are now able to complete a number of tasks from their own computers. Occupational License applications are available to the public, park facilities can be reserved and even Mosquito Control Services can be requested without making a trip to the Government Building. The website’s increase in usability has been praised as a success by both staff members and website visitors.
