Summary

The Criminal Justice Student Writer's Manual addresses the growing need for simple, direct communication. It's a sad fact that many people today lack this important skill. Administrators of criminal justice agencies are looking for people who can condense large reports into a concise sheet of facts. They want men and women who can report an agency's day-to-day activities, and not just accurately but with an understanding of their implications.

The Criminal Justice Student Writer's Manual will help you organize your thoughts in order to write clearly and accurately. Rather than prescribing rules, it helps you say what needs to be said—simply, honestly, and to the point. As you develop this skill, you will find that it will help you in countless ways throughout your career.
