TTV students produce national video Monday, July 30, 2012 By ECHO Staff/Campus News
Members of Trinity’s Broadcast Journalism class recently completed a video for the Louisville-based company Appriss, Inc. Appriss provides innovative technology to crime victims and law enforcement officers to help keep communities safe and informed. Louie Corrons ’12, Ross Troop ’12, senior Jonathan Dunn, junior Dodge Fielden, along with their teacher, Mr. Adam Klein, produced a video on Appriss’ flagship service, VINE (Victim Information and Notification Everyday). VINE allows crime victims and other concerned citizens to learn the custody status of an offender by telephone, text, email or online. Victims can also register to be notified if an offender is released, transferred, appears in court or escapes. The students were assisted by Appriss team members Mr. Bob Bales, senior learning specialist; Mr. Gary Elder, senior public relations specialist; Mr. Rick Jones, director of media relations; Ms. Debbie Marasa, learning specialist; Ms. Sara Feltner, media specialist; and members of the St. Matthews Police Department. The video will be used throughout the United States to train Appriss employees and to inform domestic abuse victims, law enforcement personnel and social service workers about VINE.
