About the Department
We provide communications support to all three branches of Pierce County government so they can offer useful and timely information to the public about programs, projects, activities and decisions.

We assist with responses to media requests and help departments with education and outreach through a variety of methods, including video production by Pierce County TV, social media platforms and the county’s website, which receives more than 100 million page views a year.

We also assist the County Executive and County Council with requests for proclamations.

Partnerships
A key component of our work involves partnership with area organizations, including Travel Tacoma + Pierce County and the Economic Development Board to emphasize the benefits of conducting business here.

Other partners include:
  • Regional agencies overseeing health, clean air, public transit, etc. 
  • United States Golf Association, Pacific Northwest Golf Association
  • Cascade Harvest Coalition, Forterra, PCC Farmland Trust
