client profile: florida sheriffs association
The Florida Sheriffs Association is one of the largest and most influential organizations of its kind in the nation, with membership that includes all 67 Florida sheriffs, 3,500 business leaders and more than 70,000 private citizens throughout the state who are part of its mission to support the Office of Sheriff. FSA turned to Fiore Communications to help better engage with its members and others who support law enforcement through its publications and website content. We also serve as the editorial arm of the association’s communications team, and produce the three major award videos shown at the annual meetings to honor the deputy, corrections officer and dispatcher of the year.
FSA quarterly publications are a primary member benefit and important tool for sharing the story of the Office of Sheriff. Fiore Communications provides editorial services for both The Sheriff’s Star magazine, which is distributed to all 70,000 FSA members (most of whom are not in law enforcement) and the All Points Bulletin, created specifically for sheriff’s office personnel. We provide complete issue planning, content development and editing, and production management services. We also are responsible for publishing the FSA Annual Guide to Government, a valuable resource and directory for connecting citizens with decision-makers.
website and content management
Fiore Communications is responsible for the complete content management of the popular FSA website, which averages 15,000 unique visits per month. From high-traffic pages such as the sheriffs directory and news sections to conference information and purchasing contracts, we work with FSA staff to ensure that visitors have the most up-to-date and useful information possible. We also regularly monitor the site for any functional issues and look for ways to enhance the user experience.
Fiore Communications produces the presentation award videos shown at the FSA’s two major annual conferences. Each video highlights the achievements of the honoree, with details of why they were chosen as well as comments from their supervisor and sheriff. The videos for Deputy, Corrections Officer and Dispatcher of the Year accompany a live presentation at the closing banquet and are always an emotional way to end the conference.
