Center for Public Safety Management Launches New Website
Tripepi Smith has delivered a new website for the Center for Public Safety Management (CPSM). As the exclusive provider of public safety technical services for International City/County Management Association (ICMA), CPSM is the recognized leader in helping cities across the nation address their largest cost center: public safety (police, fire, EMS). The new site continues Tripepi Smith’s string of wins delivering modern websites to service providers that operate in the local government vertical.
The new website is built on the WordPress platform and features a streamlined and mobile-responsive design. The site is hosted through WP Engine, which is optimized with routine backups, built-in content caching, and unlimited technical support. WordPress leverages a simple content management interface, allowing the CPSM team to easily update and maintain site content without having to call a web specialist. The new portal integrates basic search engine optimization tools; Tripepi Smith incorporates these tools into each website that the firm creates in order to help clients gain traffic from all major search engines such as Google, Bing, and Yahoo.
“With their hands-on experience working with local governments and their intimate knowledge of effective Internet strategy, Tripepi Smith was the perfect partner to launch our new website,” said Leonard Matarese, co-founder and Principal of CPSM. “The team was an outstanding help in laying out the steps needed to successfully launch a site that showcased the full extent of CPSM’s work for local governments. The team came highly recommended and delivered exactly as we expected.”
Continued Leonard, “CPSM offers an innovative approach to aiding cities in managing their police services; a central aspect of every city’s budget and community relations touchpoint. We rely on deep experience across hundred of public agencies, combined with a data-driven approach to police services that results in greater police efficiency, enhanced-public trust and a strong partnership and understanding between the city manager and police chief.”
CPSM provides support to local governments throughout the United States in the areas of police, fire, Emergency Medical Services, Emergency Management, and Homeland Security. The organization began its life as a part of the International City/County Management Association (ICMA); since its inception in 1914, ICMA has been dedicated to assisting local governments and their managers in providing services to its citizens in an efficient and effective manner. The ICMA Center for Public Safety Management (ICMA/CPSM) advanced the knowledge of local government best practices through publications, research, professional development, and membership. In 2014, as part of a company-wide restructuring, CPSM spun out as a separate company and is now the exclusive provider of public safety technical assistance for ICMA. CPSM’s local government technical assistance experience includes workload and deployment analysis, police and fire chief selection, training, and numerous publications.
“CPSM is a well-respected and highly skilled group of experts who have dedicated themselves to the betterment of public safety at all levels,” said Ryder Todd Smith, President of Tripepi Smith. “Our work for the Center has expanded our knowledge of both local and federal government practices. It also offered us the chance to witness how effective the two sides of the government can be when they work together on various projects to enhance public safety programs for the community. We look forward to working more with the Center in the future.”
