Public Affairs Office

The Joint Base Pearl Harbor-Hickam (JBPHH) Public Affairs Office (PAO) works with other installation PAO's to provide timely and accurate information to our base personnel, families and the public.  We provide video, still photography, web-based and social media products to help keep our key audiences informed of important events aboard the installation.  We provide community relations, media and TV and film production outreach on one of the most historically significant and strategically important U.S. military bases in the world.
