The three day Introduction to Public Information Officer Seminar is designed to provide police officers
assigned to the role of Public Information Officer with a basic understanding of their legal and
positional responsibilities. The course will also introduce officers to basic tools, tactics, and techniques
required in dealing with media and public requests for information, reinforced by practical exercises
and some practice "on-camera" interview opportunities. Though designed as a foundational PIO
seminar, it is highly recommended for all officers who may interact with the media.
The cost for the seminar is $400.00 which covers materials, continental breakfast, breaks and lunch.
