CRJ 150 Criminal Justice Report Writing


ENG 115 or ENG 116

Report writing is an essential workplace skill in the criminal justice field. Judges and other professionals in the field will read these reports, sometimes under a very close lens, and depend on them for accurate information. Therefore, it’s critical these reports contain the information justice administrators need and follow state requirements. This course introduces a report writing process and uses templates to teach how to prepare concise, complete, and correct reports common in the criminal justice field. Hands-on activities will provide step-by-step guided practice for students to improve their report writing skills, and technological trends related to criminal justice reporting will be examined.
