    old courthouseThe Pima County Communications Office proactively supports Pima County's mission and strategic objectives. Our mission is to enhance the County's visibility, image and reputation throughout Arizona, the United States and internationally.  

    The Office has multiple responsibilities: 
    • Public Communications – We use multiple media to inform the public about the governance of Pima County, including Pima County FYI, the county's public weekly newsletter, the county’s website, social media, news releases, public events and printed material.
    • Media assistance – We help journalists connect with the county sources they need for their stories; and we provide media outlets news releases about county governance, programs, initiatives and people.
    • Internal Communications - We produce eScoop, the county's internal e-newsletter, which publishes the first Monday of every month. Story ideas and submissions may be sent to the eScoop editor. We also send eBlasts (email messages sent to all County employees.)
    • Graphic Design – We serve as the primary graphic design department for a majority of county departments. We design flyers, brochures, posters, banners and more.
    • Photography and Videography – Visual communication is a big part of our mission. We help visually illustrate the programs and projects of the county, and produce informational and promotional videos about the county and for county departments. 
    • Information Service – Communications serves as the county’s telephone operator and staffs the information window in the main county administration building, 130 W. Congress (which also is the Communications  office).
