Have you seen our new website?

December 15, 2022

Have you seen our new website? We’re excited to announce today’s launch of the new justice.gov homepage. This is just one part of our intensive website modernization effort that involves the most sweeping redesign of justice.gov since 2009.

The homepage is the public’s entry point into understanding who we are and what we do. It’s been streamlined and simplified to showcase:

  • Featured content, videos, and news
  • An Action Center, with some of the most popular content users are looking for
  • Information about our mission, values, and work
  • Highlighted fugitives from component agencies

This redesign incorporates U.S. Web Design System standards to modernize the look and feel of our public-facing web presence. It also provides enhanced functionality to meet the 21st Century IDEA (Integrated Digital Experience Act), which requires government websites be:

  • Accessible
  • Consistent
  • Authoritative
  • Searchable
  • Secure
  • User-centered
  • Customizable
  • Mobile-friendly

You may notice that several areas of justice.gov, such as Project Safe Neighborhoods and the Office for Access to Justice are already in the new design, with the rest to come over the next few months. Be on the lookout for enhanced multilingual content capabilities and additional search and filter functions, among other improvements.

Following completion of the project, we will continue to refine and expand the sites and functionality included in the new design to better communicate with the public and connect them with the services DOJ provides.

We hope you like the new website, and we welcome your feedback.
