I have chosen to write an official report based on mystery novel ” The curious incident of the dog at the night time” by Mark Haddon. A story of an Autistic boy. Christopher found a dead dog that belongs this his neighborhood. He arrested by the policeman of being only one suspect in that area.
After that, he started the investigation who kill the dog. I am doing a police report by using some structures of a real police report. It including who, what, when, why and where is the incident happen. Also, a punishment that regarding christopher’s behaviors. My written assignment aims to explain the situation and thoughts of the police toward Christopher’s strange behaviors. Also, the process of police to hold up the case and wait for the medical certificate for more investigation and punishment decision.My target audience is people who are doubting about what happened after Christopher left the police station and what others react and thought about Christopher’s behaviors.Word count: 166POLICE REPORTCase number: 3062Date: 10 January 2003Main office: SwindonReporter: Daniel welh Around 12.
15 am, I got a phone call from Mrs. Shears. She was reporting about the death of her dog. She said there is one. Later, Kate and I arrived at Mrs. Shears house. Kate took Mrs. Shears back into her house and only me was outside.
I found the dog lay down on the ground. There was a garden fork stick into the dog body with full of blood. I looked more for other suspicious points but I found only a young boy was sitting beside the dog.
I asked him some simple investigation questions such as What is his name, how old is he, What was he doing here and did he kill the dog. He did answer questions but his answers were beating around the bush. He seems to be confused and nervous. During investigated, he pressed his forehead to with the ground and made some weird noises. He has some strange behaviors and strange symptoms. I tried to touch him but then he hilted me, so I decided to arrest him for assault at the police station. Later on Christopher and I arrived at the police station. I took out his shoes and emptied this pocket so that he doesn’t have any dangerous objects for escape or attack us.
He screamed at me when I tried to take off this watch. Until this, I have realized that he doesn’t like anyone to touch him and his stuff. He still 15 years old, so we need to talk with his guardian. He said he stays with his father and his mother has passed away. After he gave me his father phone number then I put him in the cell. Meanwhile, I called this father. He is Mr. Boone.
I told him about arrested his son and he is now at the police station, then he just hung up. Next 10 minutes, he arrived at the police station. He was very angry and asked to see his son. He screamed at us so I told him to calm down and explain the situation. He said that this son didn’t mean to hit me and him pretty sure that his son didn’t kill the dog. I told him that he allows seeing his son if he cooperates in a further investigation. He said do whatever we want just let his son out. I took both of them into the corridor room.
I told Christopher that his father said he didn’t mean to hit the policeman, then said he means to do that but didn’t mean to hurt me. He also said he didn’t kill the dog and he always tell the truth. I didn’t believe it but because he is underage and has an autistic syndrome. The best thing I can do was give him a caution. I let him go back home and asked this father for Christopher’s medical certificate. I need to follow up this case until I get his medical certificate so that I can summarize this case. If the medical certificate says he is autistic, then the investigation is finished because people with brain disorders take serious actions by unintentional.
But if the medical certificate says he is normal, I have to continuous investigation if he is the murder who kill the dog or not. Daniel Welh Word count: 570
