The Communications Director’s Office is a division of the City Manager’s Office. The mission of the Office of Communications is to provide accurate, open and comprehensive information about the city of College Park; to prepare marketing campaigns to highlight College Park’s positive endeavors, programs, policies, services and future plans.  The marketing efforts are to be delivered in a timely manner for the benefit of the City of College Park and its citizens/stakeholders. The Director of Communications also manages College Park’s government cable channel (TV-23) utilizing Leightronix hardware and software solutions.

The Director of Communications 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 head (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.  

The Director of Communications disseminates press releases, media advisories, responds to media inquiries, produces television announcements, manages/updates the city’s web site, 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, the city Web site, 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.
