The St. Louis County and Municipal Police Academy will offer a course for police offers in October to teach them how to “win with the media” when dealing with the aftermath of an officer-involved shooting.

The course will cover the shooting of Ferguson, Mo. teen Michael Brown. The flyer promoting the class called Brown’s death “tragic,” but promised that the course would be “highly entertaining.”

“You will learn a lot, and you’ll have fun doing it!” the flyer reads.

The class will also touch on topics like “‘No comment’ is a comment” and “managing media assault and battery.”
