The Mercer County Office of Communications is the information hub for the County Administration and its departments. Its Mission is to enhance the relationship between Mercer County Government, its citizens and the media through public relations, media relations and emergency and crisis management by acting as an information conduit.

The Office, under the direction of the County Executive, engages residents and other community stakeholders to explain the County of Mercer’s, programs, services, and to provide factual information. Working collaboratively with County agencies and departments, the Department coordinates media communications, issues management and information dissemination.

The Office increases awareness of Mercer County and all that it offers, and accomplishes these goals by developing and strengthening relations with government officials, reaching out to the local community, and communicating County news and current events through print, video and digital materials.

The Office raises awareness for the need for pre-disaster preparedness for the general public, and releases emergency public information to the media and general public prior to, during and in the recovery phase of disasters. 

The Office of Communications seeks to facilitate news coverage to the fullest extent possible as long as that coverage does not interfere with the safety, security and operations of county facilities.
