Public Information Office
The Public Information Office (PIO) is made up of the public information officer whose primary function is to disseminate information and act as the liaison between the Sheriff’s Office and the public, which includes media and other agencies. The PIO is on call 24/7 and manages the personnel who are presenting information on behalf of the Sheriff's Office to be sure that the message is clear and consistent with policy guidelines. The PIO also works with a paralegal who handles open records requests, to ensure proper dissemination.
The PIO also works with other agencies, such as the Constables, Emergency Services, the Fire Marshal, CARE Flight, the Medical Examiner, Parks and Wildlife, and the Emergency Operations Center, as well as non-profits seeking assistance in getting their message out to the public through the media.
