Impact on Maricopa
The role of the Communications Department for Maricopa County is to understand and be able to explain to the public and media all aspects of County government, not just those related to a single department. We respond to public records requests on a daily basis and are committed to providing information as quickly as possible.
Many Elected Officials have their own Public Information Officers and some county departments do as well. If the public or media is interested in a particular issue, they may contact the County’s Communications Department, and we can help people get in touch with the right person to answer any questions.
