Crisis Consulting ٠ Interview Preparation ٠ PIO/PAO Office Development

Crisis and other high-profile situations can come at any time of the day or night: A late night police shooting with racial overtones, an investigative reporter with a “couple of questions,” an alleged a sex scandal, delayed response to a natural disaster. Crisis situations are all too real and if handled incorrectly the results can be devastating.

The intense glare of the media spotlight can be a totally overwhelming experience. Your mouth goes dry, your palms get sweaty
and your brain turns to Jell-O. And that’s the first 30 seconds! Fortunately a top crisis communications expert is just a phone call

“Treat the media as you would any other watchdog…
Stay calm, let them smell your hand,
but never, never turn your back on them.” – Anonymous

Crisis management and communications is one of the most critical areas in law enforcement and public safety. It takes solid expertise, instincts, street smarts and a cool head under pressure to turn a crisis or other high-profile situation around.

Proper messages need to be developed, a calculated response must be given, a department’s credibility and image must be protected, legal issues have to be considered, etc.

When every minute counts and silence can cost your department everything, it’s time to contact one of the top names in police media relations: Chris Ryan

Mr. Ryan leads a small but powerful crisis team. Ryan, an internationally recognized expert in crisis communications, police media relations and image management with 20 years experience. He is often called upon to share his expertise with viewers of ABC World News, MSNBC, FOX News Channel and Court TV.

We are ready to respond to your situation big or small, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our work on a local, regional, national and international basis.
