Seminars in Law Enforcement

Basic Report Writing

Ever had a report kicked back? Your ideas are only as good as your ability to express them. A good report can be more

important than a good arrest. In this one day seminar, we’ll discuss “What is a good report?” A report is a systematic, well

organized document which portrays factual evidence of an incident which has taken place; therefore, the following areas will

be discussed:

• interpretation and documentation of the significance in events or facts;

• discussion of sentence formation, grammar, punctuation, and technical writing skills; and

• the recording of a sequence of events in chronological order.

Reports must always be accurate, concise, clear, and well structured. This course will give the student more knowledge and

an understanding on composing a flawless report.
