Officers, whether working in patrol, investigation, or custody, are required to write reports every day. These reports will be used during the course of criminal investigations, prosecutions of suspects and incarcerations of convicted felons. Excellent reports help prosecutors convince a judge or jury that the accused did in fact commit the crime. Report Writing for Police and Correctional Officers provides potential and in-service officers an opportunity to strengthen their writing ability by presenting a brief introduction to the written English language, as well as specific police and correctional related report writing skills.
