Officer Joe Ornelas is the on call PIO from Friday evening through Monday morning. Joe will issue press releases for overnight events on Saturday and Sunday morning by 1:00 p.m. At his discretion, he may be available for soundbites on calls related to those published press releases.
For information on breaking calls, please phone our Dispatch Supervisor at 409-880-3865. The Dispatch Supervisor will give you basic information and you can then send a photographer or reporter to the scene. Once on scene, you may obtain additional information from the on scene Patrol Supervisor.
Please DO NOT phone the on call PIO for information on breaking calls as they are off and will not have any further information on active calls. The best source for info on calls you may hear break on the scanner is the Dispatch Supervisor.
