With the absence of thorough report writing concerning the use of force has, and continues to cause issues with civil and criminal litigation.
This course will address some of those deficiencies with a better-quality understanding of the niceties needed in a response to resistance reports, along with enhanced courtroom testimony.

The student will have a healthier appreciation of the investigation process from the internal affairs phase concerning the investigation standpoint and progression.
