By Luther Turmelle
The Press Club of Long Island will be holding a special meeting on Thursday focusing on the relationship between police and the press.
The program will feature a panel discussion on journalists’ rights and responsibilities at crime scenes as well the policies that police have and
the training they receive on managing the media at scenes. Panelists will include Newsday Associate Editor Cliff Schechtman and representatives from the Suffolk and Nassau Police Departments. Carolyn James – a former SPJ Region 1 director and the editor of the Babylon Beacon, Amityville Record and Massapequa Post – will serve as the panel’s moderator.
