In times of emergency, communications play a vital part in ensuring the proper response and handling of an event. For this reason, the JPSO has established a formal Public Information Office.
The JPSO Public Information Office functions as a resource for the public and for representatives of all news media (local, national, international, broadcast or print).
The primary objective of the JPSO Public Information Office is to provide accurate, concise, and timely information to the public that is directly related to or impacts public safety. The Public Information Office is also involved in publicizing, highlighting, and promoting the goals and accomplishments of the JPSO.
The JPSO Public Information Office is manned by three PIO Officers, Colonel John Fortunato, Glen Boyd and Lt. Jason Rivarde.
