This police report worksheet will help you organize information you plan on reporting to the police.
Filing or otherwise contributing to a police report or complaint is serious business. Unfortunately, the circumstances leading to the need to file a report or complaint can be incredibly stressful. The details surrounding your experience may therefore become less easily recalled over time. Once the adrenaline of a stressful experience wears off, you may not be able to identify important facts on command. It is therefore a good idea to get your experience (and any supporting documentation) down on paper. That way, you can easily reference your notes related to your experience whenever you need to. As an added benefit, organizing relevant information via a police report worksheet may help you to take your mind off your experience. Once you have committed your thoughts to paper, it may be easier to “put them down” mentally and emotionally. Should you later need to reference them in a follow-up interview, in legal proceedings or for any other reason, you will have a quick reference designed, in-part, to refresh your memory whenever applicable.
- Organizing relevant information before reporting a crime to the police
