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.



Course Topics:

  • Strengthen Report Writing Skills
  • Improve Report Quality
  • Topics: Sentence Fragments; Run-On Sentences; Misplaced Modifiers; Proper Comma Placement; Use of Colon & 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
