Your reports attest to your professionalism and in
addition, the facts and actions in your reports may be used to
provide data for statistical studies help justify an arrest or
disciplinary action, justify that you are following legal
guidelines and provide vital clues for follow- up investigation.
A well – written report can impress a supervisor, newspaper
reporter or defense attorney or may be a deciding factor to
proceed with a prosecution. To brush up on grammar and usage,
you need to write effective sentences, paragraphs and reports
with skills on three comma rules ( to separate nonessential
elements in the sentence, items in a list or series and to
introduce a quotation/ date/ addresses, numbers ) , two ways to
use apostrophes ( to show possession and to create contractions
) , four pronoun rules ( be specific, make pronouns agree with
their antecedent and make their references clear ), five rules
for capital letters( proper nouns ), and six subject-verb
agreement rules. In addition, you need to master criminal
justice vocabulary.
Let’s practice!
