Interestingly, Polisen scored points on questions where very few other sites on The Index have – you would expect that this would lead to an outstanding rating, but Polisen dropped points due to some surprising misses.

There were also a number of technical misses that contributed to a low Google Page Speed score (37/100) – one such issue was that Gzip compression has not been enabled. This is a simple thing to fix and gives instant benefits through faster load times and reduced bandwidth consumption.
