Between 1981 and 1982, I was assigned to Staff Planning and Research for the Kansas City, Missouri, Police Department. While there, I wrote, compiled and/or edited a Police Report Writing Manual, complete with the singularly proper way to complete EVERY report form used by sworn personnel on the PD, a section on eliminating police gobbledygook in narratives, and several sections on refresher English, (something dreadfully needed!!!). Various sections of the manual are still in use today in the KCPD and Eastern Jackson County Regional Police Academies.

Sgt,
I wrote a style guide and didn't even know it. It is an essay called A Sonographer's Road Map to Success. Information needed for folks like me who want to own their own businness.
It is for sale on Amazon for $2.99.
It has examples of writing styles when communicating with other agencies.
I was thinking about changing title to Field Manual for Sonographers.

Off topic: You're other post on business phone is so ting I have been wondering how to get a business line that rings my phone.
Anyway, I enjoy watching you on this website. You have great ideas for business.
Cheers,
Mark

That's interesting. I've had a few similar situations. I'm always looking to learn something. After my post on business cards, I'm one step away (that business phone option) from ordering my first batch of cards. It looks weird but it will do for now. Thanks, though. I've always taken pride in being able to ask the right questions.
