This is an  OSS Academy® News Media and the Police online training course offered for Peace Officers, Jailers, and Telecommunicators.

Law enforcement officers are in a high profile occupation. Whether you are writing a traffic ticket, responding to a domestic violence call, or sitting in a parking lot writing a report, you are constantly in the public eye. The public image of law enforcement is as varied as the communities and number of residents we serve. This course is designed for officers with and without the responsibility of dealing directly with the news media. We must all remember, the public’s perceptions are shaped in large part by the good, the bad, and the ugly interactions we have with the media. During this presentation, you will learn practical and useful tips on how to better manage your potential vulnerabilities when dealing with the news media.

Please note, the entire course final exam(s), and course evaluation(s) must be completed in order to receive one (1) hour of course credit.
