Realizing agencies are hiring lateral Officers whose literacy skills are lacking, this course will cover the three cores of how to write a strong LE narrative from note-taking, review of body & dash-cam tapes, composing the rough draft, to final copy proofed & edited.

The course includes a 4-hour block on good writing skills, addressing grammar issues that cause confusion, contradictions, & misrepresentations in police reports.  The block covers coherent paragraphs with clear transitions, sentence types & structures, 8 parts of speech, & 8 punctuation marks.  It clarifies confusing pronouns, ambiguous police jargon, & how the passive voice of the verb breaks the evidence chain of custody.  It clarifies what to quote & how to do it.  Everything is wholly tied to Police Report Writing.
