SEMINAR FOR AGENCY SPOKESPERSONS AND PERSONNEL WHO SERVE AS PUBLIC INFORMATION OFFICERS
February 27-28, 2019
A basic two-day seminar for the designated public information officer, chief, assistant chief or other agency individual who serve as a spokesperson for their department with the media during an event involving wide community interest or concern.

Topics to be presented over the two days include: (1) role/goal of a public information officer; (2) legal aspects and repercussions of disseminating information; (3) writing news releases that have impact and get noticed; (4) handling tricky questions; (5) never having to say "no comment"; (6) State Public Records Law; (7) building a solid relationship with local reporters; (8) using the media to your advantage; (9) being "on call"--a necessary part of the job; (10) handling the intense media spotlight when a tragedy or major case occurs; and (11) on-camera interviews and practice.
