Question

Exercise One:

Report Example: Read the following report and then answer the questions below.

In the following scenario, you are a police officer responding to a disturbance call at a residential

home.

At 1835 hours, I was dispatched to 3445 Redbird Dr regarding a burglary. The reporting person

is Robert D. Madison, the homeowner. I arrived at 1855 hours. Upon arrival, I met with Mr.

Madison. He explained to me that while he was at work, during the day, someone had broken

into his house. I asked him if he knew how his home had been entered. Mr. Madison showed me

his back door and door jamb, which was broken. There was a large boot or shoe print on the

door, near the lock area.

Mr. Madison said he left his home around 0745 hours for work, and did not return home until

approximate-ly 1830 hours. His wife is working out of town and his son is away at college. Mr.

Madison stated that he is missing a Sony laptop computer, a 32” Samsung flat screen TV, a

Samsung DVD player, 4 antique watches that were on a fireplace mantel, about $300 in cash and

his wife’s jewelry box. Jewelry is missing as well. The owner will provide a list of the jewelry

once he talks to the insurance company that has a list of the jewelry. A neighbor walked over to

speak to Mr. Madison and said that she saw someone at the house earlier in the day, but did not

see them break in. I spoke with the neighbor, Ms. Danielson, who lives directly across the street

from Mr. Madison’s home and has a clear view of the victim’s home and drive. Ms. Danielson

said that she was sitting in her living room talking to her sister on the phone at approximately

1430 hours. She said that she saw a white van pull into the driveway of Mr. Madison’s home and

watched two men get out and go around to the back of the house. They were both in their early

twenties, and dressed in dark blue or black coveralls. One was a white male, the other was a

black male. The van had a sign on the side that said “Joe’s Plumbing.” Ms. Danielson got up to

let her dog in from the back yard, and a few minutes later when she came back to the living

room, the van was gone. She thought it was odd that they were only there a few minutes, but

didn’t think much about it until she saw the police car. She cannot provide any further details

about the suspects or the van.
