The following is important information for any media interested in attending the press conference:

In order to accommodate all media, and due to the high interest in this case, media will be permitted to attend by reservation only. Reservation requests must be submitted in writing by e-mail to no later than 5:00 p.m. PST today, Thursday, Oct. 13, 2011. Phone call and late reservation requests will not be accepted.


Please include all of the following in your written media reservation requests: the names of the media personnel wishing to attend, their job function (e.g. TV reporter, newspaper reporter, photographer, etc.) and the equipment they would bring (e.g. still, video, audio). Media are asked to limit their reservations to one reporter, one still photographer, and one videographer per agency. Any requests for exceptions must be made in writing.


Upon receipt of reservation requests, media will be sent a confirmation e-mail regarding their press conference reservation. The OCDA will try to accommodate all requests but makes no guarantees. Media will receive their reservation confirmation no later than 7:00 p.m. PST today, Thursday, Oct. 13, 2011.


Media must receive confirmation in order to attend. In addition to a reservation confirmation, media personnel must display their official press credentials issued by a law enforcement agency in order to be admitted. Media who do not have both a reservation confirmation and official press credentials upon arrival will not be admitted. No exceptions will be made.
