Updated Design, More Content, Added Features

10/08/10

Today, we are launching a new and improved FBI.gov, featuring major enhancements to our popular website.

Now it will be easier than ever to find information on everything from Top Ten fugitives and the latest crime statistics to breaking news and articles about some of our most interesting cases—all presented in a crisp, easy-to-navigate new format.

The redesign—based in large part on visitor feedback—is the most sweeping in the history of the site, which was first launched in June 1995. In recent years, FBI.gov has consistently been one of the highest rated government websites.

Here’s a quick visual tour of the major changes and new features—click on the links in the write-ups to explore the pages.


FBI Homepage
The new homepage has been simplified to showcase featured content and breaking news. We’ve also moved the navigation to the top of the page to make information easier to read and find and organized everything under eight key areas identified by users as our top content. In addition, we’ve added a new A-Z index to help you quickly locate information.

On our Most Wanted site, we’ve made it easier and faster to find who you’re looking for by creating an interactive, scrollable web-based poster design. We’ve kept the traditional poster as well and made each one downloadable and printable. There is also a new search engine that lets you query by name, gender, wanted category, crime category, rewards, and locations.

 

About Us
In the About Us section, we’ve enhanced our key investigative pages—Terrorism, for example—to include more content and an “In the News” section where you can read about recent cases and events. We also created new pages for identity theft, intellectual property theft, health care fraud, and bank robbery.

A new page called The Intel-Driven FBI provides details on our preventative post-9/11 mindset and our growing suite of intelligence tools and capabilities.

Our redesigned History page recreates the Biograph Theater in Chicago, where John Dillinger was felled by FBI agents in 1934. The site includes new interactive features—click on the classic car, for example, and you’ll see an interactive timeline of the Bureau’s history. And don’t miss the History Theatre to screen videos of our past.

Our new Partnerships and Outreach page brings together in one place details about our many operational, information-sharing, and outreach alliances.

 

News Blog

The News Section has been expanded to include more direct links to our press releases, speeches, stories, and other content. The first link in the menu is our News Blog, which streams our latest stories, videos, and breaking news by date and time. On our video page, we’ve created a new widescreen player and a search bar that helps you quickly find all our videos.

Stats & Services and Scams & Safety in the main navigation are also new, designed to put essential information at your fingertips, whether you are a concerned citizen or a law enforcement official. Check out the new Crime Statistics page that includes links not only to our traditional Uniform Crime Reports but to our many specialized reports on terrorism, white-collar frauds, bank robberies, and more.

And don’t miss Fun & Games. Our goal here was to go beyond a traditional Kids page and create an interactive place where people of all ages could enjoy quizzes, games, and other interesting information. One example is our new avatars, which feature real FBI employees answering questions about their jobs.


That’s just a brief look at the new FBI.gov. Please explore and give us your thoughts—pop-up surveys will appear on the site for your feedback—so we can continue to refine and update the information we offer to the public. Above all, enjoy using the site, and thank you for being one of our nearly 30 million annual visitors.
