Utah Department of Public Safety

DPS - Public Information Office

The Public Information Office (PIO) communicates the Department of Public Safety's interests and activities. Most people in our community have little or no direct contact with law enforcement, emergency management, or other public safety professionals. Most residents' perception is based on what they see and hear through the media. The PIO plays a vital role to ensure the public is kept informed through television, radio, print, and the Internet. Each day, our PIO team works closely with media outlets and the public to provide information about vital public safety issues.
