WAUSAU (WAOW) - Have you ever wondered what the role of the media is in covering stories that involve law enforcement? 

A community-wide discussion on law enforcement and the media kicks off Wednesday, May 9 at Wausau's North Central Technical College.

The free five-part project is called Beyond the Headlines.

The first session focuses on Building Trust: Law Enforcement, the Media and You.

It is a chance for community members to dig deeper into state and national media coverage of police, and how the story is being told.

Several nationally-known and local media and law enforcement panelists will take center stage.

Since 2017, a committee of area media representatives, law enforcement and community members have worked to develop topics for the free discussions.

Sessions begin at 7 p.m. and run until 9 p.m. at the NTC auditorium in the Health Sciences Center at 1000 West Campus Drive.

For more detailed information on upcoming topics click here.

The Wisconsin Humanities Council, the Wisconsin Institute for Public Policy and Service, News 9 WAOW and other local media and law enforcement have partnered on this project.

It is funded in part by a grant from the Mellon Foundation -- in partnership with the Pulitzer prizes.
