By: Kirk B. Redwine, CriminalCriminal A criminal is any person who through a decision or act engages in a crime. This can be complicated, as many people break laws unknowingly, however, in our context, it is a person who makes a decision to engage in unlawful acts or to place themselves with others who do this. A criminal always has the ability to decide not to break the law, or if they initially engage in crime to stop doing it, but instead continues. Justice Institute

The Importance of the Police Report

Without the police report, your government has no real idea of what is going on, and cannot prioritize or allocate resources to address the problem. The failure to report results in reduced police resources, and crimes that are never addressed.

“Most entertainment media represents police work as an unrelenting and constant barrage of exciting chases and shootouts, where the good guy always wins in the end. Unfortunately, this is, for the most part, quite an inaccurate depiction of the majority of police work. In fact, I believe the vast majority of good police work is supported entirely by an officer’s ability to present accurate, detailed and informative information in the form of the police report. Nearly every service we perform as police officers calls for the initiation of some type of permanent record. This record may be anything from a single line entry concerning an unlocated problem to a lengthy detailed investigative document describing unimaginable pain and suffering.”
