This training tool combines the basics of two disciplines: investigation and report writing; and bridges the gap between them. Not designed to teach how to write, this book instructs on how to write a police report. 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, and the book provides numerous examples of how these principles work. Topics covered are investigation basics, note taking, the rules of narrative writing, describing persons and property, crime reports, arrest reports, writing search warrants, and automated report writing. For those employed in law enforcement, corrections training personnel, and police department staff that utilize an automated records management system.
