A former television news journalist turned media relations director for two large Washington, DC area police departments shares her tips for how to get your civilian PIO up and running in a law enforcement world. Julie Parker shares her experience regarding breaking into a culture that can be, ahem, somewhat averse to change. She'll detail how hiring civilian PIOs can jumpstart positive press for an agency from the moment the PIO is hired. She'll also outline how chiefs and commanders can best support their new media hires.
