The department now says all information will pass through its press office and its press officer, however, many members of the media are strongly against this and have expressed very little confidence in the efficiency of such a process. Prior to 2013, that is how the media accessed police information but a few years ago ComPol Whylie implemented a change within the department, which allowed the media access to interviews from various police commanders across the country.
The police press department will be meeting with the media next week to discuss the matter.
