Effective Report Writing

Effective Report Writing

  • February 5-6, 2018

The impact and reach of any police report is often underestimated. Many officers think that reports begin and end at their departments. The opposite is true. It is amazing how many people and organizations are affected by a written report. The clear, concise, and correct police report goes a long way towards obtaining a positive ending.

The Effective Report Writing class was developed by a retired police detective with more than 20 years of investigative experience. He is currently a magisterial district judge, which brings an additionally valuable perspective on developing and delivering the proper written report.

The Penn State Justice and Safety Institute (JASI) is pleased to partner with our co-sponsor to offer this powerful two-day program designed to help law enforcement write reports that will help, not hinder, the criminal justice system. This highly interactive program places an emphasis on imparting the knowledge and skills needed to properly develop and/or review effective reports. All of our courses are instructed by current practitioners or recently retired executives.

Key concepts and topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Strategies to make written reports simple
    • Easy to read
    • Understandable
  • Make reports fact-laden
  • Develop professional standards
    • Create consistent review standards
  • Using standards and writing styles to increase consistency
    • Document and report
  • Report writing training tactics and strategies
  • Address and review grammar basics
    • Essential grammar, spelling and punctuation
    • Chronological, past tense and first-person emphasis
  • Group and individual exercises

Cost: $345 per person

Pro-Active Patrol/Become a Street Smart Cop

  • May 14-15, 2018
  • November 13-14, 2018

This course is designed to make the Police Officer CONFIDENT in their everyday duties as well as become proficient and open their eyes to Criminal and Narcotic Interdiction.

This training will teach a police officer how to detect when a crime is about to be committed, is being committed, and has been committed.

Department’s should know that this training is more than “Drug Interdiction.”

Crime is broad and this training may very well be able to prevent acts of terrorism and mass casualty. Give your police officers the “know how” to detect and prevent such occurrences. Police officers are being trained on what to do when a catastrophic event occurs but not how to stop one before it happens.
The student will learn Patrol Tactics, identifying criminal behaviors and reactions to police presence, Case Law that all cops need to know, Search and Seizure, Drug Trends, the laws that we don’t use in Title 39, Consent Searches, and HOW TO NEVER LOSE WHEN SOMEBODY IS LYING ABOUT WHO THEY ARE!

These methods have been proven to be efficient and are COMPLETELY LEGAL derived from law manuals. We will show you legal and effective methods for conducting Re-Active and Pro-Active patrol functions in NJ. Training our officers with knowledge and legal tactics will prevent embarrassment and lawsuits from misinterpretations of the law.

THIS COURSE BENEFITS ALL DIVISIONS OF A POLICE DEPT, NOT JUST PATROL!

This course is designed to make the Police Officer CONFIDENT in their everyday duties as well as become proficient and open their eyes to Criminal and Narcotic Interdiction.

This training will teach a police officer how to detect when a crime is about to be committed, is being committed, and has been committed.

Department’s should know that this training is more than “Drug Interdiction.”

Crime is broad and this training may very well be able to prevent acts of terrorism and mass casualty. Give your police officers the “know how” to detect and prevent such occurrences. Police officers are being trained on what to do when a catastrophic event occurs but not how to stop one before it happens.
The student will learn Patrol Tactics, identifying criminal behaviors and reactions to police presence, Case Law that all cops need to know, Search and Seizure, Drug Trends, the laws that we don’t use in Title 39, Consent Searches, and HOW TO NEVER LOSE WHEN SOMEBODY IS LYING ABOUT WHO THEY ARE!

These methods have been proven to be efficient and are COMPLETELY LEGAL derived from law manuals. We will show you legal and effective methods for conducting Re-Active and Pro-Active patrol functions in NJ. Training our officers with knowledge and legal tactics will prevent embarrassment and lawsuits from misinterpretations of the law.

THIS COURSE BENEFITS ALL DIVISIONS OF A POLICE DEPT, NOT JUST PATROL!
