First Responders vs Media

First Responders vs Media: Blog 1

Hello!  My name is Brandon Piehler. I am a senior at Manhattanville College studying communication and media with a minor in sports studies.  As any typical senior, I am always asked the question “What are you planning to do?”  My answer is entirely different than what they expect, become a police officer. Becoming a police officer has been something I’ve wanted to do my entire life!  It runs in the blood, my father is a detective, and my grandfather was the chief of police.  I’ve had the opportunity to become a firefighter and EMT with the LaGrange Fire District and be hired as a police dispatcher for the Town of Fishkill Police Department.  Both these jobs have jump-started my careers putting me in exciting and dangerous situations.  Throughout my short career, I have witnessed many changes in technology and our media.  In this short blog serious I will talk about real-life scenarios which have happened to either myself or coworkers involving our every day changing media.
