From Joseph E. Badger for the California Association of Accident Reconstructionists Newsletter, December 2013:
"I've reviewed hundreds of accident report narratives and the detailed results of complete investigations.
Owing to copious misspellings, terrible grammar, and lousy sentence structure, I nearly wept and wondered why someone doesn't write a book specifically for criminal justice report writing....Guess what.
She is Jean Reynolds, Ph.D. Her 221-page book is titled Criminal Justice Report Writing. It will definitely help you with your writing skills."
Review by Mark Gallo for Reference Points: The Journal of the Michigan Association of Traffic Accident Investigators, December 2013:
"...a good text for use in the academy. It could also serve as a valuable reference for experienced investigators who want to improve their writing (a group which should include all of us)....I taught field note-taking and report writing for ten years, off and on, at the Oakland Police Academy. If this book had been available back then, I would have used it."
