Garner, a chief of police who trained as a journalist in college, worked as a rookie reporter and police public information officer, and taught media relations, shows law enforcement officers how to work with the news media, use advantages they present, and minimize negative aspects. He explains what police officers and reporters can offer each other, the technical parts of the news, strategies for establishing mutually beneficial relationships, developing policies and procedures for media relations, the importance of an effective public information officer and how to select and prepare one, and how to use newspaper journalism, television, radio, and Internet news to maximum benefit. He describes how to give an effective interview, produce news releases that will get used by the media, lead a news conference, understand and deal with tricks used by unscrupulous journalists, deal with challenges at the scene of the crime or incident, learn responses for recovering from an episode of bad news, and bring the public good news that the agency generates.
