Statements by Police

These statements are here (and will be added to from time to time) because it may be useful to some students to survey the language of police statements, though some care must be taken as they are not necessarily all written by serving police officers: for example, larger police officers may use a separate public relations office, run by PR people, rather than operational police/law enforcement people. Nevertheless, these statements could serve as the basis for a corpus of certain types of police register.
