   We know you can write a good police report,
  that's one reason why you are a supervisor. 
  But, as a supervisor, you are responsible for
  everyone's police reports.  
So, as a supervisor, do you really know how to review a police report?
Whether you are a new supervisor, or have years of experience, this class will help you to know what is important in a police report in order to create a more thorough investigation and successful prosecution!
This is not a grammar class, or a report writing class.  This is a class that will help you review a police report for accuracy and completeness.  
Have you ever heard of Brady v. Maryland, or Giglio v. United Sates?  If your answer to that question is NO, then you need to attend this training.  These cases and others are important for you to know to keep you and your agency from costly litigation. So, be aware and be informed.
This course is taught in a participative style so participants are asked to forward a copy of a police report* they have recently investigated to the trainers when they register for the class.


Gary McIntosh, McKinney Texas:
The section on types of evidence was the best.  It was good to get input from someone who is not a cop.  

David Sullivan, Belmont Massachusetts:
Excellent instruction and knowledgeable instructor.  These skills will be very helpful moving forward.

Karen Bueno, WPI Massachusetts Police Department:
Very Helpful - Pointed me in the right direction to have more attention to detail.  Some good tips.

Supervisor, Corpus Christ Texas PD:
Instructor was very detailed and clear with what supervisors must be reviewing.  Materials helped and doing the exercise helped.  Enjoyed the class!

Other comments:
 - Class was very informative and helpful with understanding why being
    truthful is so important.
 - Very good information for supervisors to help with the report side of
    the job.  Instructor was very knowledgeable and answered questions
    that were asked. Would recommend this class for other supervisors!
