A-Block Forensic Analysis™
The most intense review of your organization’s media policy is our A-Block Forensic Analysis™. This analysis takes into consideration not just your current media policy but all of your department’s policies and how they interact. We have found that a review of only the media policy falls short of a comprehensive plan for media relations. Additionally, a media policy may be effective for some entities of the organization but not meet the needs of specialized units such as SWAT Teams, Narcotics Units, Air Units, Homicide, Juvenile Crimes, Sex Crimes, Crimes Against Children, K-9, etc. We create several sub-policies that are consistent with your overall organizational requirements. The A-Block Forensic Analysis™ includes recommendations for the implementation of the revised media policies as well as a training schedule for managers and their subordinates. Each policy will take into consideration and follow the hierarchy of legal requirements on the federal and state level, local laws and ordinances, officer and public safety issues, victim’s rights, ethical issues, and best practices. Realizing that media policies need to be reviewed on a routine basis, A-Block can also provide service to your revised policy yearly or as needed.
