Its official: the League's fall police workshops are underway!
Pictured above is Doug Holtz—a retired police commander and adjunct criminal justice instructor—teaching the police report writing workshop in Bemidji on Thursday morning, September 24. The officers who attended were from the Bemidji area and represented multiple departments.
The course itself is a blend of classroom instruction, interactive discussion, and active-writing exercises. The officers have just finished their first writing assignment during a working lunch, and the assignments were printed and turned in for evaluation.
There are still a few of these courses left this fall. For information on upcoming workshops, visit www.lmc.org/police15blog2.
