Use of officer opinions in reports
I am in my 3rd year as a criminal justice major at AIU and I am taking a report writing class. My text book is not aligned with the assignments (and my prof. and dept. chair are aware of this) and I am at my wits end on where to find the information I need to complete this assignment. So if you could PLEASE answer a few questions for me...
I have to provide 2 example of when an officer giving his opinion in a report is beneficial and 2 when it is a hindrance ( I understand why it would be a hindrance but I need examples) I have no idea when it might be considered beneficial.
What are 2 examples of writing reports incorrectly in the law enforcement field?
What are the correct steps from the scene of the accident to charging an individual with a crime? (yes these questions are in sequential order and no, there was nothing about an accident anywhere else in the assignment!)
Thank you in advance for helping me out!
