Other Types of Local Stories

Prepping for a local crime is what interested me the most. I didn’t realize how much work it would take, but proximity demands treading carefully.

There are three basic sources to check first: police officials/reports, victim, and witnesses. Supplies to bring to a scene may include: recorder, camera, and old fashioned pencil and pad. Smartphones are the best tool to have when reporting a crime scene in order to keep the story as up-to-date as possible.

Know the story, but be sensitive about the facts at first. Don’t give away details unless the story is sure-fire. Once again: verify or duck.
