Five tips for dealing with the media
Maintain your professional composure.
Find out the journalist’s name, the name of the publication/outlet, deadline and their contact details.
Don’t respond immediately – take time to consider your response.
Remember that nothing is ‘off the record’.
Contact the MPS Press Office as soon as possible for advice.
