For courses in Criminal Justice Writing, Communications and Report Writing for Law Enforcement, and Police Report Writing.

The 5th edition of Report It in Writing is a must-have, must-read guide for Public Safety professionals who need to write reports. Organized in an easy-to-follow A to Z format, it discusses both report writing elements and basic writing skills. Each part tackles a specific aspect of report writing–from listening to punctuation. Integrated exercises focus on indentifying basic facts and reinforcing basic rules of the English language.  With its emphasis on ethics, investigative reporting and interpersonal skills, this book shows officers not only what information should go into reports, but also how to write this information well.
