Hosting Police Community Relations Training
Consider hosting a Fire Dept. Media Relations event at your department. As a host agency, your public information officers & leaders have a unique opportunity to get high-caliber media relations instruction, ideas and insight. It allows your personnel to stay in-town while getting solid interactive consulting and training along with perspectives from other city, state and federal officials.
As the host of our training course, your agency is responsible for providing a training facility to hold the course and assistance in marketing to officials from departments and agencies in surrounding areas.
In exchange for assisting with the course, 1 official from your agency will be allowed to attend free of charge for every 10 paid registrations. We handle registrations, paperwork, handouts, certificates, etc. Generally, a minimum of 12 paid registrations is needed to present the course.
We also offer buy-out opportunities. This means that your agency buys-out the seminar for a set fee and gets a custom training and consulting program geared to the issues that are specific and to your unique to your agency and community.
We agree on a fee for presenting the seminar at your agency or pre-arranged location. Your agency provides a training facility, audio/visual equipment, fills allotted spaces in the seminar, handles registrations, notifications, confirmations, etc.
We present the seminar, provide workbooks, hand-outs, certificates, etc. The cost per person is lower because your agency handles much of the work prior to the seminar. This can be a great networking opportunity for various agencies in you community.
Thank you for your interest in course hosting and buy-out opportunities. If we can answer any questions,
please call 1-602-445-6442 or e-mail.
Police Community Relations In-Focus
Police and Sheriff’s Departments are most effective and successful when protect and serve has police community engagement in-focus. Law enforcement agencies that are highly focused on engaging their community see almost every contact with the possibility of making a connection. When connections are being made at every turn, it provides opportunities to dispel a myth, change a perception, start a conversation or ask a question. Police Community Engagement as a priority works.
I’m realistic and understand that it’s challenging to think of police community engagement when officers and deputies are oftentimes dealing with unruly people, complicated and dangerous situations. It’s a bit of reprogramming and rethinking but it’s also a moment to take a step back… reprocess things from a community engagement perspective. We’re building something special, one brick at a time. It’s one thing to simultaneously protect and serve while engaging the community, there are creative ways to get it done…
