SPJ Madison- Pro offers Safety Training for Journalists

The Dane County Sheriff’s Office is partnering with the Madison chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists to help journalists stay safe on the job.

The personal safety presentation comes after the shooting of an anchor and photographer during a live broadcast in Virginia in August.

“The Dane County Sheriff’s Department is partnering with SPJ Madison Pro Chapter to ensure that journalists in south-central Wisconsin have the tools to both do their jobs as reporters and photographers while remaining safe on the job,” said SPJ Region 6 Director Joe Radske.

A seminar this weekend with Deputy Kelly Rehwoldt will offer personal safety tips journalists can use in their daily lives. Rehwoldt is a 22-year veteran and a full-time trainer with the Sheriff’s Office.
