About Genres of Power: Police Report Writers and Readers in the Justice System
Genre of Power: Police Report Writers and Readers in the Justice System chronicles the story of one police report as it travels through the judicial system. The chapters are organized in order to analyze the writing and reading process of the officer writing the report and the report’s subsequent readers. By highlighting the work that a police report does and the multiple purposes and audiences it must serve, the book ultimately addresses the power dynamics of writers and readers in the judicial system, and examines who is served (or not served) by police reports.
