Generally police officers still view the media with some suspicion. A suspicion that i suspect is borne out of a historically poor relationship. The modern view is that a good relationship with newspapers, broadcasters, and a well managed social media policy, can reap huge rewards.
Both sides are known to have made mistakes, but as with any new venture it takes a process of fine tuned trial and error to succeed.
I would love to hear your experiences of this flourishing relationship. Have you any experiences of when it has succeeded? or any when it has failed?
