    The Public Information Officer sure seems burned out on the idea of releasing public information.

    Most cops are the worst PIOs. Department's should hire non-sworn media specialists, not hand the job to an officer.

    PIO for a big city cop shop is a horrible stress-filled job and this chap has my sympathy. But it seems to me judged by his own words most of the stress came from his fellow cops, not the reporters.

    Probably a lot less stress telling the media about the incidents then actually taking care of them on the street.

    Didn't notice Jim Romenesko's own note at the bottom until now:

    "That department has always had a bad relationship with the press, simply because they do lie so often. And they once threatened to arrest me for not turning over my notes."

    She should have quit much sooner if she didn't like it.
