Media Relations Inquiries

Inquiries regarding items of local interest should be directed to the local troop headquarters. For example, a motor vehicle crash on I-70 in Dickinson County should be directed to the Troop C headquarters. Items of statewide news interest be handled by the state public information officer (PIO) at General Headquarters in Topeka. Information on injury and fatality crashes is posted on the online crash logs.
