Report Writing Skills for the Security Officer
The accuracy and quality of an incident report reflects upon the credibility of the reporting officer and the company he represents. An officer’s total effort when responding to a situation can be summarized on a few sheets of paper. The report may be used to help an experienced prosecutor decide whether or not to bring a case to trial. Written reports are the primary means of communication between the officer, supervisor and client. Well written reports show the client that they have hired a professional. The intrinsic benefits are numerous for both the officer and the company that employs him/her. This curriculum is used by police departments nationwide and is published by the Law Enforcement Resource Center for Departmental Instructors.
