PIO Contact

The Public Information Officer (PIO) is the central information and communications coordinator and spokesperson for the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office. Our primary goal is to accurately disseminate information relating to the operation and activities of the HCSO to the media and public in a professional and courteous manner that will inform without jeopardizing the integrity of the office or its employees in any way.

The PIO is also involved in promoting the HCSO and its employees both internally, i.e. our Awards Program and in other county programs. Common activities include providing positive information about the HCSO to the media and citizens’ groups. That includes speaking at local commission meetings and civic groups, sponsoring HCSO programs like the Coalition for Domestic Violence Fair, Community Shred Day, Law Enforcement Memorial service and a host of other recognition activities.
