This 8-hour course is designed to provide officers with an understanding of how to drat report narratives with defense=resiliency in mind. This will be achieved by using the Gap-Free Narrative© approach created by Offset Consulting LLC.
This approach to report writing was created by doctoral candidates and focuses on drafting a complete police narrative by standardizing the way officers think about and write their reports about an incident. Under this less plan and the principles of the Gap-Free-Narrative© system, students will be taught how to use the systems checklist and narrative breakdowns. This is a departure from man departments, previously taught report writing methods and is research-based.
This new approach will teach how to analyze a narrative to ensure it has the parts necessary in it, and them employ a checklist to ensure all aspects of the reported-on incident are being documented. Every type of police narrative, from stolen property to homicide, can be handled with ease when using the Gap-Free-narrative© method property.
