Directorate of Corporate Communications

The primary role of the Corporate Communication Directorate is to enhance the national, regional, international identity and image of the National Police Service. It is focused towards promoting public confidence and trust by conveying informative, accurate, timely and factual information to build and promote a positive image of the NPS.

Information for both internal and external consumption is streamlined through a multi-faceted communications approach with a view to promoting access to clear facts about the police and to enhance interaction with members of the public.
