View On-Demand (Recorded February 5, 2019)

Following a call, your report is the first and most important opportunity you have to record the events as you experienced them and explain why you took the actions you did. Most police reports are straightforward, but when you’ve been involved in a critical incident or used force on a subject, your report becomes vital to ensuring your success should the case go to trial. 

In this webinar, veteran attorney and former law enforcement officer Bruce Praet shares tips for how officers and supervisors can create more effective police reports that stand up to scrutiny in court. 

You’ll learn: 

  • Essential elements to include in police reports—and what to leave out
  • How to write in a way that will connect with members of a jury
  • Tips for handling witness interviews
  • How to prepare to present your report in court
