How To Write A Report Of An Event

A report should brieflly state the most important information. It should answer all the main questions:
1. Who?
2. What?
3. When?
4. Where?
5. Why?
6. How?
In writing a report by a police officer about a defective vehicle, foe example, you might plan it like this;

Paragraph 1 - Introduction
Basic information: When? Who was the owner? What was the type of vehicle?

Paragraph 2 - Development
More detailed information: What did you observe to be defective about the vehicle? Number the defects one by one. What did the owner say? This secttion could consist of more than one paragraph if required.

Paragraph 3 - Conclusion
Concluding remarks; these could mention the action you took perhaps the warning you gave to the owner, and the owner's reaction.
When you write a report, you still need to go through the planning process that we outlined on one of our previous post.
