Under the direction of the County Manager, the Public Information Officer (PIO) disseminates information about the actions of the Board of County Commissioners and informs the public about the many services and programs provided through county government.

The PIO works with the media, distributing press releases, coordinating press conferences and providing vital information during emergencies.

Other responsibilities include: website content review and creation, public affairs strategic planning, production of publications and public relations materials, special events coordination and community outreach.

Frederick County has a well trained and informed group of public affairs specialists serving on the Public Information Committee of the Emergency Management Policy Advisory Committee.  During emergency situations, the members coordinate their communications to make sure citizens and the media receive notifications and updated information in a timely and accurate fashion.

Citizens are encouraged to contact the Public Information Officer with questions and requests for assistance.
