                                                                Officers.  This highly-acclaimed course will

                                                                teach appropriate writing skills to those

                                                                officers who require improvement in

                                                                communicating facts of incindents and

                                                                investigations to superior officers, prosecutors,

                                                                and court personnel.    

                                                                This eight-hour course prepares officers to

                                                                write basic reports that will not only withstand scrutiny in court, but will guard law enforcement agencies against liability concerns that stem from poor documentation.  

This course is for new officers who lack experience writing official narratives, as well as seasoned officers who have developed poor writing habits which have been left unchecked by supervision. Topics covered include:

▪ Grammar, spelling, punctuation, and proper English standards;
▪ Writing in the active versus passive voice, and maintaining voice continuity
   throughout the report;
▪ Properly documenting responses to resistance (i.e., use of force);
▪ Articulating observed facts in a professional fashion for presentation in court;
▪ Eliminating the old ways of documentation (e.g., using "VIC," "SUS," or "COM").
