Dude it sucks.

Colour scheme needs to be less Steven Lim, layout can be less M$ Word, and for the love of god change the music.




Useful bits of information though.

I don't know if the Singapore Police will oblige but in the UK for a while the Police marked peoples mobile phones with a pen mark which was only visible in infra-red light. However, many people change their phones within a relatively short period so I don't know just how successful this venture proved.

I second that, people here change their hps like change t-shirts like that. The turnover rate is too high, that's why there are so many hp models being sold here.

Is this a school project? You might want to consider a standardised template to facilitate loading time and consistency. The smiley bullets are cute but it eats into your bandwidth. Consider rollover effects for your buttons instead. I can't tell if you're aiming for a minimalist approach like Maddox or slick commercial website.

If its content you're after, why not just head to your local NPP for brochures and info booklets? Interview the officers for further information.

A successful website needs to have both form and functionality apart from content. What is the purpose of your website? To provide information? Would you read a book that has its pages jumbled up, all of it text in different fonts and formatting? Depending on what you, the author, have intended, a website's content will evolve over time as new information becomes available or required. But for it to reach that stage, it has got to be at least easy on the eyes of the viewer first.

Maybe you would like to just not have too much animations and just a standard site with the information presented in a more proper way to read.
