Just the Facts: Investigative Report Writing
This workbook combines the basics of two disciplines--investigation and report writing, and bridges the gap between them in order to teach the basics involved in writing a police report. Fundamental guidelines for investigative reports are established through a set of rules that are easy to understand and apply in any type of report writing scenario. Chapter topics include note taking, describing persons and property, crime and arrest reports, search warrants, and issues in writing. For police officers who have difficulty turning their preliminary investigative efforts into quality reports, and anyone involved in law enforcement training seeking a tool to produce effective investigative report writing.
