Media Police Academy registration is now open! ALL Media personnel from public or collegiate news organizations are invited (desk editors, reporters, radio personnel, camera crews, newspapers etc.).

Based on the feedback we received from the first academy, the classes will take place on (4) Tuesday nights from 6:00 PM to 9:30 PM. Classes will be held at the Marietta Police Department on the following Tuesday evenings: October 17, October 24, November 7 and November 14. 

Media and the Police can find themselves on different sides on the same situation. Both organizations have tremendous pressure to uncover information as quick as possible. This academy is a continuation of our commitment to build strong ties to the community we serve. Our goals include showing all participants the “behind the scenes” information needed so they are better informed when covering a story as well as building a higher level of mutual understanding.

This is an interactive academy and relies on the involvement of the participants. We have designed multiple hands on scenarios and plan to cover topics including but not limited to: Information Access, Community Programs, Tools issued to officers, Investigations including forensics, Narcotics task force, Traffic enforcement tools and goals, SWAT, Less lethal use of force options and a state of the art judgmental use of force scenario.

We are committed to maintaining a healthy relationship with all members of the media and hope each media channel / source will send at least one or two representatives to strengthen our partnership. Please contact Officer McPhilamy at cmcphilamy@mariettaga.gov to register.
