Since the launch of the website, a host of innovative add-ons and features such as our new "Poll Module" have been added.
The "Poll Module" will appear in the center of the homepage, www.jeffcoso.org, and aims to gauge public opinion about various topics or issues pertaining to public safety, as for the purpose of analysis.
A new poll will be posted periodically for the public to cast their vote, with result percentages viewable to the public and in some instances answers provided following the casting of the public's vote.
To curtail or thereby eliminate issues with voters casting multiple votes in an attempt to skew the results, an added feature to limit or restrict votes for voters by only one per IP Address has been installed. This is another clear example by which the Sheriff's Office is steadily finding new ways to display and strengthen its ability to be transparent.
With the added feature, the department also hopes to continue to improve the efficiency of the Sheriff's Office in hopes of encouraging the public to engage in a more active role in community efforts.
