Award winning Public Information Officers Kyle Roder and Robert Teuteberg will present this course in a hands-on format, addressing the PIO position and it's place in modern policing. Day 1 examines the logistical aspects of the PIO as well as benefits this position can provide to your department, both in the area of public relations as well as crisis management. This eight-hour block would benefit any administrator who may only be able to attend a portion of this two-day training event. Day 2 will be a practical approach into the use of social media, television/radio interviews with local media, and more. This course will be customized to the needs of the class and is the precursor to the Public Information Officer - Advanced.
