Media Policy

It is the policy of the Cornwall Community Police Service to cooperate fully and impartially with representatives of the news media in their efforts to gather factual public information concerning activities of the Service.

To operate effectively, the Police Service must sustain the support of the public. By providing the news media and the community with information on administrative and police operations, a relationship of mutual trust, co-operation and respect will be maintained.

An open and professional working relationship between the police and the media is essential to:

a) Keep the public accurately informed of crime and newsworthy occurrences;
b) Maintain media involvement in crime prevention and community policing programs;
c) Promote public services performed by police.
