Investigative report writing is an extremely critical aspect of a complete and thorough investigation. Regardless of your role or scope as a first responder, these skills transcend all positions. Many successful investigations rely on lesser event incident reports generated. At the same time, many investigations have been drawn out, due to the failure of some to prepare competent incident reports. A properly prepared, thorough and complete report can make the difference in bringing an investigation to a successful resolution. This course will break down the aspects of a good investigative report, search warrant application and criminal complaints with several practical exercises to develop your writing skills and capabilities.
The objective of this course is to better prepare the first responder how to properly compose an investigative report, search warrant application and criminal complaint to complete an investigation.
