Reporting Principles and Practices

Information published at derives from original reporting, media reports, police officials and other sources. Curated news items are employed in accordance with the Principles in Fair Use for Journalism supported by the Center for Media and Social Impact.

We strive to adhere to the Principles of Journalism set forth by the Project for Excellence in Journalism and the National Press Photographers Association’s Code of Ethics. And we strive to advance the Best Practices in Trauma Reporting from the Dart Center for Journalism and Trauma.

We believe that we have the specific, local expertise necessary to report accurately from emergency radio transmissions in Philadelphia, and we follow the Batavian’s basic rules for scanner reporting.
