Public Affairs Office Business Hours: Monday – Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
If a critical incident occurs, initial details will be posted to the SPD Twitter account once they have been confirmed. SPD strives to get this update posted as quickly as possible. Prior to the initial details being posted on Twitter, the on-call PIO will not have information to release to the media. A department representative is available after hours to respond to follow-up questions from media representatives about critical incidents only. All non-critical incident inquiries will be handled during normal business hours.
