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, little time is invested in sharpening and improving this essential function of police work.

Topics: Common Errors Such as Sentence Fragments, Run-on Sentences, and Misplaced Modifiers; Proper Comma Placement; Proper Use of Apostrophes; Pronoun Usage; Proper Capitalization; Subject- Verb Agreement; Common Spelling & Usage Errors; The Importance of Writing in Active Voice vs. Passive Voice; Writing in First Person vs. Third Person; Including Objective Facts vs. Subjective Opinions; and how to properly review a report before final submission. 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.
