MEDIA INQUIRIES


The Communications Director is the primary point of contact for media inquiries; however, both public safety departments (CPPD and Fire Rescue) have structured media response capabilities at the discretion of each department director (Chief of Police, Fire Chief).

When a public safety emergency generates media inquiries, the respective public safety departments have full latitude to hold press conferences, make statements and/or release information to the local and national media outlets.


COMMUNICATIONS DEPARTMENT RESPONSIBILITIES 

Additionally, the Communications Department produces a wide range of electronic & print media ad campaigns, produces television announcements, manages/updates the city’s website, and provides guidance for departments’ management of individual pages under the collegeparkga.com website.

The Communications Office also oversees and coordinates many events and programs dedicated to community outreach.

The Communications Director coordinates city-wide outreach and marketing utilizing a wide variety of industry techniques.


Information is delivered through the mass media, CPTV 23, College Park's website, social media, and other effective means.

The Office of Communications provides support to city staff for media awareness campaigns and suggests ways to enhance public communication based on trends, available resources and the timely exchange of information.
