Jaws of Justice Radio will start at about 9:15 AM due to Pledge Drive
Author Lance LoRusso On Police Reaction To Criticism
JoJR interviewed Lance LoRusso in July of 2014 about his book WHEN COPS KILL: THE AFTERMATH OF A CRITICAL INCIDENT TAKES YOU THROUGH AN OFFICER INVOLVED SHOOTING AND THE YEARS AFTER a guide for police officers and their families after an incident where an officer takes a life. Lance released a new book in December of last year titled BLUE NEWS that is intended to help police and police departments navigate the media storm in the wake of police killings.
“Conflicts between law enforcement and journalists often stem from a lack of understanding, My hope is to broaden the knowledge of both and thereby improve their relationships.”
Host Craig Lubow will talk with Lance about his book BLUE NEWS and why many police officers and police departments feel under siege from the public they are charged with serving.
