With the tragic murder of Officers, plus mass shootings and terrorist attacks across the United States, THIS may be the most relevant and valuable training you will ever receive.  This class is taught by 2 instructors who were on the ground in Dallas, San Bernardino, Ferguson, Baltimore and Roseburg during and following the most recent breaking news events.

This class is geared for:  Police, Firefighters, Prosecutors, Public Information Officers, Command Staff, Trainers, Community Relations Personnel and anyone else who deals with the News Media .  This fast-paced, hands-on, interactive training is designed to help Law Enforcement communicate more effectively with the Media and Public, both routinely and during times of crisis.   In addition to instruction, an assortment of video clips demonstrating both good and bad media relations incidents are projected on-screen.   The class is conducted by Emmy Award Winning veteran broadcast news reporter Russell Ruffin who has worked with both Fox News and NBC, covering such stories as the Fall of the Soviet Union, Columbine High School Shootings, the 9-11 Attack, Oklahoma City Bombing, as well as Police and Fire beats.

Class Participation: LIVE On-Camera
To make the experience more realistic, a full-size TV News camera is brought in so that everyone in the class can practice before a LIVE camera.    Breaking News Simulations are run and each student goes before the LIVE camera for interviews and news conferences.  The instructor and the rest of the class act as reporters by asking tough questions.    Participants are given an objective critique, along with a DVD video of their performance.
