Documenting Force

June 3-4, 2015
Lane Thomas Building, Room 303

Documenting the use of force is difficult because these rapidly evolving events are physically and emotionally stressful. Reporting critical details accurately requires effective recall, note-taking, organization, and writing skills.

Reports must provide details that are clear, concise, accurate, and easy to understand. Reports that lack needed details are more likely to be taken out of context, attract unnecessary scrutiny, and generate litigation.
