Police urged to engage with media

The Metropolitan Police Authority has reported on public order policing following the London "G20" protests a year ago. It concludes that the Met "must strive for better engagement with the media... and ensure all officers on the ground are able to recognise the press card, its security measures and the status it gives journalists.". The full report is at www.postG20.notlong.com - see "appendix 1". It includes the Association of Chief Police Officers flyer for distribution to police officers to explain the Press Card.
