  • Remaining objective while taking a police report

    When an officer is taking a police report, what procedures must be followed to remain objective and to avoid “coaching” or “leading” someone?

  • #2
    1. Ask what happened
    2. Write down what the person says
    3. Return to station and complete the report

      I realize every situation is different, but if the officer taking the report was a friend of their and told the person exactly what to write, word for word, would that be improper?

            Tian,

            It is illegal for a police officer to take a report, arrest, or be involved with anyone they may know, be related to, friends with, or other. Ignatz V. SCOTUS, Fed ID10T, app.

              It is called doing our job
              Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

              My new word for the day is FOCUS, when someone irritates you tell them to FOCUS

                  Staying objective is one thing; sometimes keeping a straight face is much more difficult.

                    Yeah, but some reports are more entertaining to write than others...
