This is going to sound very basic, but before you start working on a report, have a sample and study it.Don’t just look at it; really study it. Ask yourself these questions before you start.
How does the department write case numbers? Is there a hyphen in the case number or not? How do they write the information in the header? Is it all-capped or upper- and lowercase? How do they write their headings? Again, are they all-capped or upper- and lowercase? Are the headings bolded or not? Do they have a colon or not?
Are you fascinated with television shows involving law enforcement?
Are you looking for a “legitimate” stay-at-home job?
Would you like to work your own hours?
Then a career in police transcription work may be in your future.
