Media and Local Government: A San Francisco Bay Area Survey.
The results of a survey conducted among departments of the San Francisco Bay Area cities, counties and special districts are summarized. The project investigated the degree to which local government agencies used media for staff training, internal documentation and public information purposes and included within its scope the use of slides, film, audiotape, videotape, broadcast radio and television, cable television and news releases. Significant results include the findings that slides and film stand out as the most frequently used media, and that police and sheriff departments are the heaviest users of all types of media, especially videotape. The report contains tables cross-referencing specific media to the departments of local government which produce and consume them, as well as a summary of discussions from a workshop run after the completion of the survey.
