Preparing for First Amendment Audits
2 hours - First Amendment Audit groups claim to be a social movement that takes it upon themselves to conduct audits of government entities to promote transparency and open government.

Representatives of the groups will show up at government facilities, video record the parking lot, and the facilities operations. On some occasions, they will question employees, asking for their names and position. They may ask about accessing official government records. When public employees ask questions, the attitude and demeanor of some of these people can be unnerving, annoying, flippant, aggressive, and on occasion, they may use foul and abusive language. Unfortunately, many of these audits may become confrontational in nature.

The purpose of this course is to prepare public employees for these types of audits.

The Safety Directors Office encourages all public employers to prepare for a First Amendment Audit.
