Corporate communications has a key role within the Cornwall Police Service in terms of building and maintaining the public's understanding and support of our services. Our goal is to provide timely and accurate information to the public, via the media. This is done by issuing news releases, holding news conferences, responding to media inquiries and arranging interviews with our officers and personnel.
It is the policy of the Cornwall 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 Cornwall 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.
