Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office is committed to accessibility

Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office strives to maintain a website that is both accessible to all visitors and compliant with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) put forth by the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C).

We recognize that accessibility and usability are not always possible in every area of the website, or for those visitors using assistive technologies and devices. Palm Beach Sheriff’s Office conducts accessibility reviews of its website and remediates issues uncovered by these audits. Please be aware that our efforts are ongoing.

This website endeavors to conform to level Double-A of the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines 2.1. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities. Conformance with these guidelines will help make our website more user friendly for all residents of the county.

While we strive to adhere to the requirements of Section 508 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended.  Section 508 is a Federal law that requires agencies to provide individuals with disabilities access to electronic and information technology and data comparable to those who do not have disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on the agency. More information on Section 508 and the technical standards can be found at Section508.gov.

Though it is not always possible to make content completely accessible in all areas of the website, we are actively working on solutions that will bring all areas of the site up to the same level of overall web accessibility.
