Media Relations and Community Outreach

The Grand junction Police Department has two Public Information Officers (PIO) assigned to the Administrative Department. The team is responsible for communication to the media, public and within the organization. The PIO serves as the primary contact for media and public inquiries, both on and off scene, and the coordinator of interviews given to the media. The PIO team is also responsible for handling the department's social media, website, annual report, and providing background information on police department services, programs, and projects to the public, media, and other audiences. The PIO team also serves the department in community outreach, working closely with the Community Resource Unit and School Resource Officers, by organizing and managing programs and initiatives that promote the department and engage with the community. These include public education and presentations, events and activities, fundraising campaigns, and special initiatives.
