Effective Writing for Law Enforcement
|Dates:||June 8, 2021 - June 9, 2021|
|Times:||10:00 AM - 2:00 PM EDT|
Virtually everyone in the world knows how to use Microsoft WORD®, but very few law enforcement professionals have been taught how to use this program in the performance of their jobs. This is that class. How do we write? How do we create documents within a law enforcement environment? These are the questions asked and answered in this course.
Unlike most “computer” courses, this class does not begin with a blank computer screen and “standard” toolbar. This course starts with an Officer Involved Shooting, and the need to convey the facts of that situation internally (to the Agency and its administrators), externally (to the public), and to the courts (as a report of evidence). Originally designed and created for ATF Intelligence Specialists, this course uses Microsoft WORD® to help LE professional communicate through written documentation.
Who Should Attend
This class is designed for any active law enforcement personnel, support staff, or administrative assistants. Prior experience is not required.
Students should bring a laptop with Microsoft Word and Adobe (version 2003 or higher) is required.
