Through its Public Information Office, the Tallahassee Police Department actively reports on its activities to ensure citizens receive accurate information on matters important to the community. By keeping citizens informed, the Public Information Officers play a pivotal role in ensuring the public's trust, cooperation and support is maintained in their law enforcement agency.
Using a variety of advanced communications tools, TPD's PIO team works to keep the public well informed. Members serve as official spokespersons for the department and coordinate responses to media and citizen inquiries. They also work in partnership with the City's Communications Department and other information specialists during emergency situations, such as weather-related events.
In addition, the PIO team promotes how the community can work in partnership with the department. Working in conjunction with the Community Relations Unit, the PIO team coordinates events such as departmental tours, "Shop with A Cop", "Bring Your Sons/Daughters to Work Days" and the "TPD and You Breakfast" with the Police Chief. This type of community involvement embodies the "Trust, Loyalty and Commitment" that are the fundamental foundations through which Chief Michael J. DeLeo leads the Tallahassee Police Department.
