Writing Well for Public Safety Forces - 8 hours
Instructor: John Detchon
Description: 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 need to use the information it contains (e.g., prosecutors, courts, arbitrators, civil officials outside of law enforcement).
Who Should Attend: Law enforcement personnel who have a need, or desire, to enhance their report writing skills? The major focus of this course is on composition, not grammar and sentence structure.
Take Home: A comprehensive course manual that can be used as a job-aid is given to each participant and a certificate of attendance. Students will receive a model policy, class manual, handouts and certificate of training.
