If you are someone with strong communication skills, a commitment to inclusive and meaningful engagement and a desire to contribute to positive change, this is the position for you! The City of Boulder is hiring a new Public Safety Public Information Officer.
The successful candidate will support communication strategy development and implementation for two departments that are committed to reshaping their professions to meet emerging and current needs, partnering with the community in new ways and using data to inform decision-making.
The Police Department recently hired a chief who is implementing a roadmap to reform. The department is also about to undergo an update to its Master Plan, which is expected to shape policing culture and administration in Boulder for the next decade and beyond. The Fire Department, newly accredited, is preparing to build new stations, take over delivery of advanced medical care and has pledged to increase the number of female firefighters.
The Public Safety PIO also serves as a member of the city’s award-winning Communication and Engagement Department and will have an opportunity to contribute to an organization-wide effort to support racial equity in Boulder.
We need a strong communicator and engagement strategist with a demonstrated work ethic, can-do attitude and commitment to continuous improvement. While previous public safety experience may be helpful, it is not required.
