Communications Office

MPD provides timely dissemination of information to the public. Additionally, our team works with media, community and business leaders, elected officials and other members of the public to promote excellence in police services; mobilize public involvement, and increase awareness of public safety initiatives that build upon the department's crime reduction strategies. 

The Communications Office is staffed Monday - Friday 8 a.m. until 5 p.m. CST. We will respond to media requests after hours during large incidents that require immediate information to the public.
