In-Class Exercise: Flipping the Camera:
This exercise is designed to learn what it’s like to work on the “other” side as the person who responds to an incident or situation and is the “keeper of the information” and only allowed to release certain parts of information as the investigation is underway. Think of times when a breaking news situation is happening, the sheriff/cops/coroner/etc know more than they’re telling us, and they need to tread carefully because for various reasons they are not able to immediately release all the information they have or it may compromise their case investigation. Please follow the plan below, break into your group of five, read your case scenario, and then decide who will take on what role, who will speak, how you will present, and what info you are prepared to answer if asked, but that you may not present in the first place (“targeted withholding”). Even if you are not a presenter, do not worry, I’ll be monitoring groups and highly aware that everyone is participating in the gathering of information and coordination of this exercise. Good luck – and have fun with this exercise!
