Welcome Joyce Blaschke to SCPD Family

After 2+ years of searching....We are proud to announce our new Community Relations Specialist.....(drumroll please)....Welcome Joyce Blaschke. 

Joyce will be transitioning into our primary media relations role including day-to-day media releases, and on-camera interviews.  Additionally, Joyce will be managing our other forms of communications to include social media.

We are so excited to have Joyce on board here at SCPD.  Joyce comes to us with over 20 years’ experience in marketing communications with the Santa Cruz Sentinel.

She earned two major degrees; B.S in School of Journalism and B.A. in Communications from the University of Colorado.

Initially on the way to San Diego, Joyce fell in love with Santa Cruz and made this community her home.
"This small town has a big heart. I found the community in Santa Cruz to be creative and courageous. It can be eclectic and traditional but never boring. There is always something to do."

After 20+ years, Joyce is still surprised and delighted by the many joys and possibilities found here.
"It's amazing how many people I meet who live here and do things on national and international platforms."

Joyce enjoys lending a hand to groups that support and encourage children. 
"I love it when kids' achievements surpass everyone's expectations.”

Joyce's experiences give her a deep appreciation for how an invested community is essential to our overall quality of life.  She will be a strong asset for our department and community.   

Please join us in welcoming Joyce Blaschke to the Santa Cruz Police Department family.
