RNC Media Relations and Social Media Officer, Cst. James Cadigan

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 plus thousands of interactions with the public on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and SnapChat.
