This course emphasizes writing narratives in the first person, and eliminating unnecessary and distracting police jargon that adds nothing to the quality or value of the report. The emphasis is on writing a report for the audience that will use the information it contains (e.g., prosecutors, courts, arbitrators, and civil officials outside of law enforcement).
Attendees are taught:
• How to apply ten principles for writing factual and straight-forward narratives.
• How to improve listening and questioning skills to separate facts from inferences
• How to apply basic and simple principles of grammar to produce proper reports.
Students receive a comprehensive course manual that can be used as a job-aid, handouts
and certificate of training.
