This is an OSS Academy® Report Writing - A Fresh Look online training course offered for Peace Officers, Jailers, and Telecommunicators.
Law enforcement officers pride themselves on their ability to catch the bad guys. The excitement, the publicity, and even the glamour of good triumphing over evil is, for most of us, intoxicating. However, after the chase and the adrenaline has worn off, comes the drudgery of writing the report and documenting what just occurred. A great number of law enforcement officers consider this portion of the job to be unimportant, so they let their report writing skills fall short of what they should be. Simple articulation of descriptive factors is sometimes ignored, leaving readers of the report confused and skeptical of the truthfulness of the author. This course is designed to refresh and reinvigorate your report writing skills, and to offer tips about how to improve your writing, so your final report offers the reader an accurate, concise, and total picture of what occurred. Finally, we emphasize the importance of report writing as an extension of the officer's tactical skills, and how more suspects can be convicted and sentenced based on how you express yourself with the pen or word processor. Also covered is how new technology can help all of us when we are performing this important task.
