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.
Topics: Sentence Fragments; Run-on Sentences; Misplaced Modifiers; Proper Comma Placement; Use of Colon and Semicolon; Apostrophe; Pronoun; Capitalization; Subject-Verb Agreement; Common Spelling Errors; Active vs. Passive Knowledge; and how to structure a report to conform to proper English grammar.
The instructor will use interactive tools and activities to keep each student engaged. Students will also see real 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 more confident in their report writing skills by using the simple and engaging techniques taught throughout the course.
