The below is a register of any contact between Chief Officers and media representatives that does not result in media coverage.
The vast majority of contact between officers and the media is planned and in relation to specific incidents or issues, where they may be interviewed or quoted to give their view. Such contact is not recorded in this log, as it is already available and transparent through material included in News Releases issued by Devon and Cornwall Police and/or in resulting media coverage.
This log records any interactions that take place less formally or are unplanned, such as media being invited for an Editors' briefing or Chief Officers speaking to journalists at a public event.
A record is made of any contact in the same way Hospitality is recorded. Any contact will be released on a quarterly basis, in a spreadsheet below.
