  • 1. Leicestershire Police PR Campaign ADV 410 Quiz 2 University of Illinois
  • 2. Situation A reporter went undercover in the  Leicestershire Police Department. She uncovered an atmosphere of laziness, unhelpfulness and sexism. Soft core porn was displayed in stations and officers would ignore rape call that came in. While on duty officers would sit in the station and play cards or play hide and seek with their police cars.

  • 4. Audience Primary Audience: Residents of Leicestershire  Secondary Audience: All residents of Great Britain 
  • 5. Strategy The public must know that the majority of  the police department does not support the actions of these few officers. The public must also understand the steps that are being taken to remedy the situation.
  • 6. Tactics Have the head of the police department issue a public apology  Launch a full scale investigation run by outside organization.  This will improve credibility Take disciplinary action against offending officers  Develop mandatory training program focusing on sexism and  sexual harassment Run advertisements focusing on individual officers and their  “story.” Find officers that give back to the community to run stories on. This will help draw people over who already thought police officers were bad people. Ads will be run not just in main stream media but in busses  also to target immigrant community.

  • 12. Suggestions for Action Town hall meeting will be held to address  the concerns of the public. By having high level officials available to answer questions and hear about complaints, the public will feel that they are helping to bring about change in the police force.
