In these days of corporate downsizing, budget cutbacks,
outsourcing and revenue shortfalls, the first departments to be cut are
often corporate communications and other creative areas. That does not mean, however, that the
need for such services diminishes simply because there are no in-house personnel to
More and more corporations and municipal agencies
are outsourcing these projects to freelancers for a variety of reasons. Utilizing
freelancers allows companies to meet their in-house and external communications needs without the
attendant costs of a full-time employee, such as healthcare benefits, sick leave,
pensions, payroll taxes, and workers' compensation.

Police Department, she assisted the Officer in Charge of the LAPD's Employee Assistance
Unit in writing in-house departmental brochures detailing that unit's many services
available for employees.

enforcement and other social/political issues have been published in major
newspapers and national publications, including the widely-respected FBI Law
