Representatives from government agencies and attorneys in Maryland attended a forum hosted by The Center for Forensic Excellence at Stevenson University. These representatives identified a critical problem of communication skills, both in writing and oral testimony, of individuals employed in the investigative/forensic field. Individuals who conduct investigation must be able to effectively communicate in writing the results of their investigation. At the conclusion, or at interim points of an investigation, it is advisable to prepare a Case Report that includes the Summary of the Investigation along with Findings and Recommendations. Most agencies and businesses that employ investigative units require Case Reports and have a standard format to use. No matter what format that is utilized, the writer must be able to communicate to the reader what pertinent investigative information was learned in a clear, accurate, thorough, concise, and unbiased manner.
The writer must keep in mind that the Case Report could be utilized for disciplinary action, criminal prosecution, or civil action. The writer must be prepared to testify to the accuracy of the report to a tribunal if needed. The writer must also be aware that the Case Report will be an official document that could be dissected by opposing counsel if it used as the basis for adverse action against an individual or organization. Therefore, it is imperative that the author of a Case Report be able to synthesize a plethora of information learned during an investigation and capture it in a well written report.
