Storytelling is what we do.
Sometimes it’s hard to tell your story, to get the words out.
In the immediate aftermath of the tragedy on December 31, 2017 that led to the death of a Douglas County Deputy and several others wounded, everyone was asking “what happened”?
Information is still coming in, details are still being processed. Press conferences are a barrage of questions from every corner and make it impossible to tell the story, however tragic, of the events that occurred.
When Douglas County asked Loclyz Media Services to help accurately and respectfully tell the story of the tragic events of that day we were honored to respond.
Some stories are harder to tell than others. Sending our team to work with the Douglas County Sheriff, staff, and county community was an honor. We were humbled by the professionalism and dedication of the professionals still reeling from the loss of one of their own and their dedication to helping the Douglas County Community through a shocking and difficult time.
We come from a tradition of storytelling with our background in television journalism. Video storytelling has become the new standard of how people learn about what is going on in their community and the world around them. While we are incredibly proud of the work we did in helping the Sheriff’s Department tell this story, we are even more proud of the groundbreaking effort that Douglas County and the Douglas County Sheriff’s office did in finding a way to give voice to the story of what happened during the tragic events of that day.
Here is their story.
