Designed for use in two consecutive Police Foundations Program (PFP) courses: PFP 104, a generic college English course; and PFP 204, a course geared toward the forms of communication used in policing, specifically, report writing.

Adapted from the U.S. second edition, this text is essentially a structural workbook containing exercises on punctuation, grammar, parts of speech, etc., focused on the needs of Police Foundations students. Nine new rhetorical sections have been added to the Canadian edition, resulting in a text that is both a communications resource and a practical workbook.
