To operate effectively, police organisations need to communicate both internally and with the community. The public "know" about crime and the work of the police from the media, and it is essential that police at every level in the organisation learn how to work constructively and cooperatively with the media to increase public understanding. In this subject, police accountability to the community, community satisfaction with the police, and the value of strategic inter-agency relationships, alliances and partnerships are examined, as are the wider social, legal and political context. At an applied level, good internal knowledge management and communication, and best practice use of web-based information, are examined.
