This communication project provides an overview of public relations as seen through the communication arts. It is specifically focused to give law enforcement officers a general review of the practice of public relations, communication basics, and an understanding of the media. This course also provides the facilitator with multiple tools for assessing transfer of knowledge on the subject. The course has a pre-course assessment designed so as not only to stimulate trainee interest on the subject, but also as a tool to gauge the importance of future communication training on the group. Additionally, this course approaches the transfer of knowledge based on important aspects of problem-based learning by having the trainees submit a completed case study assessment. The following are appended: (1) Training Plan Approval; (2) Training Needs Survey; (3) Background Questionnaire & PBL Case Study; (4) Student Course Guide; (5) Final Exam; (6) Syllabus & Rubric; and (7) References.
