While the Cape Coral Police Department's primary service is to its citizens, property owners and businesses, it is also evident that many of the website users are visitors and companies exploring business and home ownership opportunities here. The Department further recognizes that economic development in Cape Coral necessitates the need to link to outside agencies that gather data in this arena.
While the Cape Coral Police Department website will not link to commercial sites, the website may provide external links to any of the following:
- Other government agencies, social service organizations, special purposes districts, hospitals, transportation hubs, or educational, entertainment, cultural and sports institutions (public and private).
- Economic development partners such as local chambers of commerce, visitor’s and convention bureau, building and realtor associations.
It is the policy of the Cape Coral Police Department to allow external links to websites that provide information relevant to the purpose of the Cape Coral Police Department website. The Cape Coral Police Department specifically reserves the right to refuse or delete any link inconsistent with this policy. The Cape Coral Police Department's website is not intended to function as a public forum. The Cape Coral Police Department will not link to any website that exhibits nudity, profane or obscene language, hate, bias or discrimination. The Cape Coral Police Department website will not link to candidate sites or sites advocating a position on City or other ballot issues. The Cape Coral Police Department website will not link to individual, personal home pages or weblogs.
The Cape Coral Police Department, in its sole discretion, shall determine how many links are appropriate and what links best promote the Department's objectives for its website. The Department also may terminate a link at any time if it determines a link does not adequately promote the Department's website objectives. Furthermore, the Cape Coral Police Department reserves the right to deny or remove any link that contains misleading information or unsubstantiated claims, or is determined to be in conflict with the Cape Coral Police Department website mission or policies.
