Public and Governmental Affairs
Disseminating information to the media and the public falls under the domain of the Public and Governmental Affairs Office. The Director of Public and Governmental Affairs acts as a liaison between the agency and the media/public, coordinating the release of information on investigations, missing persons, fugitives, agency achievements, programs and any other items of interest that may arise.
Along with its daily duties, the office also writes articles for law enforcement publications, publishes the annual report and recruiting brochures, compiles newsletters for employees and retirees, schedules speaking engagements, and produces informational and training videos. The Public and Governmental Affairs Director also represents the agency at the Georgia General Assembly, maintains the GBI web site, and responds to the public's requests for information via electronic mail.
