The Riley County Police Department welcomes Aaron Wintermote as the new Public Information Officer. Wintermote comes to RCPD from USA Softball in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, where he spent six months as a Communications Intern. He also spent close to two years working in the K-State Athletics Communications office as a Student Assistant and the Women's Golf Team media contact. Wintermote received a bachelor's degree in Journalism and Mass Communications with an emphasis in Advertising from Kansas State University on December 14, 2019.

RCPD extends its thanks to Officer Rachel Pate for her work as the interim Public Information Officer since July 5, 2020.

Officer Pate has worked side-by-side with Wintermote to ensure a smooth transition. While most functions will be transitioned to Wintermote over the next few weeks, Officer Pate's last day before transitioning back to Patrol duties will be October 31.

Wintermote can be reached at (785) 565-4183, or at awintermote@rileycountypolice.org.
