I'm sure we've all heard someone say, ''knowledge is the key to success." We're told always continue to expand your mind. As young adults, we're urged to stay in school and further our education for as long as we possibly can, especially with the tough job market out there. Sometimes people only recognize knowledge as the education you get in a school setting; however, knowledge is comprised of so much more. For example, hands-on training is the necessary education you need to extend your book-smarts to more than just an A on an exam.
This week I spent time learning about how to right reports and probable cause statements. I reviewed some previous reports and wrote my own practice draft of PC statement from an 'open container of alcohol in a motor vehicle' incident that occurred, and compared it with my supervisors'. We talked about ensuring the key facts and elements of the crime are obviously stated in the report. Articulation is extremely important when writing a solid report. With my supervisor overseeing my steps, I wrote out some of his written warnings for him and even a few tickets.
