Police – Effective Report Writing

Effective Report Writing

  • March 27, 2020

This course is intended to strengthen an officer’s report writing skills regardless of their time on the job. Most officers have not taken a report writing course since attending their Basic Police Academy Training Class. Report writing is one of the most basic and critical functions that all police officers will use a great deal on the job. Yet, very often, little time is invested in sharpening and improving this essential function of police work. Upon attending this course, the quality of an officer’s reports will improve greatly.

This course will cover topics such as the officer’s target audience, the various types of reports an officer will write during their shifts, common grammar best practices, items to include and exclude in each report, and proper methods of reviewing a report before submission. The instructor will use interactive tools and activities to keep each student engaged.

Students will also see real-life examples of well-written reports and will have the opportunity to see how an effective report is written through scenario-based training. Officers will leave this class feeling much more confident in their report writing skills by using the simple and engaging techniques taught throughout the course.
