Solution


The Chief of Police and command team have been tasked with modernizing the service. Among the top priorities is the redesign of the primary organizational website serving the public and its corresponding digital media.

Toronto Police Service receives over a million and a half calls each year alone. The police service needed to minimize the number of emergency calls, by directing a high volume of calls to the appropriate digital channels for online reporting. The Awareness campaign “Make the Right Call” was created to educate community members on the use of emergency numbers versus non-emergency numbers, how to report a crime online, and in what situation a call should be directed to city services rather than the police.

Success


Within a unique design thinking process, a needs analysis is conducted with engagement of police service members across the entire organization. Command services, police officers, and support services teams work together to create a digital media presence designed to deliver improved service to the public.
