LAW ENFORCEMENT LEADERS WORLDWIDE ATTEND CHRIS RYAN’S TRAINING
As our world becomes smaller by the minute, intense scrutiny by the news media on police and law enforcement seems to increase by the second.
Police departments world-wide have recognized the need for professional training and counsel in media and public relations. Whether in the Americas, Europe, Asia, or the Middle East, the ability to interact effectively with the news media during a crisis is critical for all law enforcement professionals.
To gain that skill, a professional trainer is required who’s been on the frontlines and who knows that the same old American law enforcement model may not work everywhere. That trainer is Chris Ryan.
Ryan, founder of Ryan & Associates Public Relations
of Phoenix, Arizona, offers a unique approach to law enforcement public relations and crisis response training. Rather than flying in the night before a seminar, armed with a highly-structured agenda and word-for-word handouts, Ryan takes a much more organic approach to training. This is particularly true as he works outside of the United States.
He believes it is impossible to teach police and other law enforcement personnel how to interact with the public and news media without having a personal knowledge of the culture in which they work. He immerses himself in the local customs and hot-button issues before ever taking the stage. Ryan finds this approach much more realistic than reading a few articles and forming an opinion about how that country’s police force should operate. That singular perspective has served him well while training law enforcement agencies in such diverse cultures as Israel, Croatia, Caribbean & the United Arab Emirates.
Mr. Ryan is available for crisis consulting, agency training & speaking engagements.
