Police Report Writing

Requirements:Listing the name and nature of the inicident is important. Because the same inicident may come up in the future. Or the same person may be involved in a situation, and we need to have on record if anyone had any past involvement. This can also potentially help us to solve a future case, just by what a police officer had wrote on their report.

Report writing is one of the most important documents that a police officer writes. This gives all of the information on a case.
