Morgantown Police Department Launches New Website
MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - The Morgantown Police Department launched its new website today.
The website was designed and developed by local design firm Mind Merge Design. The website focuses on recruiting and creating a user-friendly experience. The site has a modern feel and allows visitors to learn more about the Morgantown Police Department, its officers, and the specialized fields which make up the department. The address for the new Morgantown Police Department website is morgantownpd.com.
"The intent of the website is twofold," said Police Chief Eric Powell. "First, we wanted to make it easier on candidates to find out about the department and how to apply. Second, we wanted to make it easy on citizens to interact with us digitally. This new website allows us to do both."
The website features:
- A description of the hiring process to become a Morgantown Police Officer and the different career paths an officer can pursue in the department.
- An officer highlight, showcasing why they chose to become a police officer.
- Quick links to apply now, file an anonymous tip, sign up for a vacation check, and to view criminal and accident reports.
- Regular updates on performance metrics and other statistics.
