FBI LEEDA Course Media & Public Relations
July 12, 2021 @ 8:30 am - July 16, 2021 @ 5:00 pm
FBI-LEEDA is pleased to present a 4½-day course on media and public relations. Police cannot succeed without the support of the community they are sworn to protect. The image of an agency as a professional and ethical organization is vitally important. This course will guide the participants to promoting a consistent and positive public image of the department, enabling the community to perceive their police as a transparent organization they can depend on and trust. There are three key opinion influencers; participants will learn how each can positively or negatively affect public opinion. Students will participate in media training with numerous desktop and on-camera exercises. Topics covered include; image, branding and perception, the media’s role in public opinion, managing social media communications, interview preparation and principles for communicating in a crisis event.
