Appropriate for courses in Writing for Criminal Justice and Report Writing and Communication Strategies for Police Officers.

Now in its Fouth Edition, INVESTIGATIVE REPORT WRITING: JUST THE FACTS continues thebasic premise of the first edition—that there is a need for an entry-level report writing guide that combines some of the basics of investigation with how to write about them.  The new edition devotes each chapter to a major component of the report writing process and builds on the previous learnings. Each chapter provides an overview of what will be discussed, then offers a list of key terms that will be covered in it and concludes with a summary, followed by a short review, a set of exercises to build on the material that the chapter covered, and a ten-question quiz. The exercises are designed to build confidence and reinforce the topics just covered.
