2. What is a police notebook?

A police notebook is a memo pad or notepad that a Police Officer keeps with them in order to write down information in which they come upon during their shift. The information can vary from basic call information all the way to important notes regarding investigation details while working a crime scene. Notes from interviews can also be written down in a police notebook.

3. Do police still use notebooks?

Yes, Police Officers still have a great use for and do carry Pocket Notebooks and Notepads with them during their patrol duties and investigative duties. Pocket Size Notebooks are a must have for a Police Officer, State Trooper, Deputy Sheriff, Security Officer, Probation Officer and even a Correction Officer. If a Police Officer uses a notebook they do not have to worry about remembering information like a name, address or other specific information after leaving the field and typing the report at the police station.

There is no feeling like the one where you get sent to a call or run into an officer-initiated call where you come across vital information that needs to be written down and you don't have anything to write on or write with. File this under unprofessional.

Police Officers also work in some really bad weather so it is important to use materials that you can write in the rain.

4. Police Officer Field Notes

Entries in a police notebook can vary widely and that will depend upon the assignment of the Police Officer. Some basic entries are names, addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth and statements given. Any specific quotes are great to write down as well as license plate numbers.

5. Police Notebooks are still worthy in a digital age

As the world is going digital and law enforcement agencies are evolving almost every day with new gadgets and technology some things still remain the same. The Police Pocket Notebook still has a lot of usefulness. Officers that respond to incidents jot down information in their notebooks and then sometime during their shift they will transcribe the information from their notebook into an incident report. 

6. Do detectives still use notepads?

Yes, detectives still use notepads because writing down information while investigating a crime scene or interviewing a suspect is important to have in order to type a police report later on. This information can also be looked back on later if it is kept in notepad.

7. What type of notebook do detectives use?

Detectives use a larger notebook that can hold a memo or legal pad. This is because detectives may need to sketch crime scenes and write down statements from several people at at time.
