Grammar, Punctuation, and Correctness

Posted on January 13, 2007. Filed under: Blog--All categories, Management development, Technical writing |

Ahhh, a day well spent! What’s more fun than spending an entire day focusing on grammar usage, punctuation, and correctness is writing? Spending that day with officers from local law enforcement agencies!

A big shout-out to Beverly Walker of the Regional Public Safety Training Center (RPSTC) for working diligently in 2005 to bring my program, Report Writing Essentials, to the Washoe County Sheriff’s Office and RPSTC. Since the first running of that program, Beverly has been keeping the class full for each session. You go, Bev!

Just last week, our program was filled with officers from Washoe County Sheriff’s Office, Reno Police Department, Sparks Police Department, and Reno-Sparks Indian Colony. Every participant was there for one reason: to improve the reports they write in the course of their jobs.

We focused on the areas that will help them be more successful with their reports: including sufficient detail in the right order with clear, concise, and correct writing so that the people who read the reports will have all the information they need to take appropriate action.

I’m so proud of the officers in each and every one of my courses. They are hard-working, dedicated, professionals with a heart for the work they do and for our community. Thanks so much to each and every one of you for making Washoe County a better place to live!
