Want to improve your report writing to the point where you might even enjoy it?
Let a professionally trained writer AND experienced police detective help!
Det. Andie Metzger understands the challenges, frustrations and pitfalls of report writing better than most! As a top journalism graduate and successful police officer, she masterfully combines both "worlds" to teach veteran and new officers how to: Consistently establish the hard-to-find balance between too much information and not enough. Use the 5-step "outline approach" to help reports flow sequentially and understandably. Avoid falling victim to the more than 80 commonly misused words and phrases that can dimish credibility and weaken reports. Use strategically developed photography techniques to strengthen your case. Ensure that the use of street jargon doesn't confuse jurors and weaken report clarity. Avoid stepping over the fine line between stating facts and drawing conclusions in your reports.
It's a fact:Reports can make or break cases. Make sure yours are Rock-Solid!
