For those whose jobs depend upon their ability to observe accurately, there are techniques and procedures that can be learned and practiced which will materially increase their ability to observe and later report what they have observed. The purpose of this handbook is to provide information about these procedures and techniques. This does not mean that a casual reading of this handbook will make observing easy. However, the reader should become aware of the difficulties involved in observing and memorizing and learn how to avoid some of the pitfalls. This training will presumably permit courts to bring testimony into evidence that is otherwise inadmissible due to the ambiguity in reporting what has been observed relative to alleged crimes. This book covers basic principles of perception and techniques of search, detection, description, active learning and retention. This material is supported by examples and training exercises involving real life, everyday situations encountered by the police officer. One practical advantage of this handbook is that mastery of its contents will permit the police officer to present courtroom testimony more effectively and authoritatively without the necessity of referring to notes or records. This easy-to-read handbook is written primarily for police officers to train them in techniques of observation and learning retention without the necessity of classroom instruction.
