911 Web Daily Showcase Featured Site

Our site was showcased as the
"911 Showcase
Site of the Nite"

on the 911 Fire Police Medical Web
and presented by LT's Home Page

Here's what they said about us
in the 911 Showcase Newsletter:

"The Police Notebook, actually the home page of the University of Oklahoma Police Department, is a very well done and all inclusive police department home page. The layout is functional and very attractive as well.

The page is packed full of information on all aspects of police public safety. Including a place where you can turn yourself in and confess to your legal wrong doings, all in jest but fun. Also a BAC Blood alcohol concentration calculator, a page for kids, information on Internet crime, etc.

The police note book approach is unique and very well done. This page is well worth a visit."
