9780132132800: Just the Facts: Investigative Report Writing

JUST THE FACTS: INVESTIGATIVE REPORT WRITING, 4/e brings together all the simple rules and techniques students need to write effective investigative reports in law enforcement. Its user-friendly methodology works in any context, with any crime, regardless of the case’s complexity. Each chapter focuses on one major component of the report writing process, carefully building on what has already been learned. Coverage includes: investigation basics, note taking, narrative writing, describing persons and property, crime and arrest reports, writing interviews and search warrants, and more. This edition’s extensive updates include: more coverage of narrative writing rules, supported by more exercises; new coverage of digital evidence; and more search warrant examples — all presented in an attractive, accessible new design. Every chapter includes a clear overview, key terms, summary, brief review, practical exercises, and a ten-question quiz. This edition contains convenient blank report forms, practical exercises on condensing reports and choosing more effective language; and a fully-updated glossary.
