Media plays an important role in keeping people informed about crime and police activity in their communities. For the media to report accurately it is necessary for police to assist them by providing appropriate facts.
Every RNC media release reflects on the professionalism of the RNC. RNC media releases must always strike a balance between the public’s right to know and the individual’s right to privacy, and protect police information that forms part of an investigation or that may divulge investigative techniques.
Each year the RNC issues approximately 400 news releases and post more than 30 videos on You Tube. Because of the volume of news releases issued by the RNC annually, they are posted on the RNC website for three months from the date of posting.
