KPD hosts Media Orientation

On 4/12/2017, The Kauai Police Department hosted a media orientation day. This unprecedented event had attendees from KITV, KHON, and KHNL, as well as Civil Beat and The Garden Island Newspaper. The purpose of the orientation was to improve communication with the public and media, as well as offer a different perspective for civilians to consider when questioning why officers do what they do.

Overall, the media orientation was a huge success. Not only did the media participants learn something, but attendees from the law enforcement side got to hear perspectives from the media. The one consistent critique from the media participants was that we should have a media orientation annually, and that we stretch it out over the course of two days. With comments like that, it seems that we have accomplished our mission.
