View all copies of this ISBN edition:

There are good ways of handling the press and bad ways of handling the press. Even the professionals sometimes make mistakes and sometimes those directly influence the cases they're talking about.

Solid, practical advice about dealing with the media for the law enforcement professional. How to handle taking questions from the press, when to enlist their aid in searching for information, how to focus your message to advance your case. Illustrative examples from mainstream media cases to show how law enforcement correctly handled and mishandled the flow of information that helped make and break the cases.

The purpose of this book is to provide guidelines and act as a handbook on law enforcement dealings with the media.  The need for good police-media relations is stressed.  The book discusses plans on how to go about building positive associations with the media, along with what can and can not be shared in the media.  Different schools of thoughts as to what should and should not be shared with the media are explored.  Extensive case studies will be examined.
