Do you know of, or work with, fellow officers who use "slang/inaccurate" terms in police reports or other official documents?

Describing a magazine as a "clip" is factually inaccurate and implies ignorance or contempt for their duty to accurately and precisely define said item(s) in the report.
Unfortunately, a few. Mostly rookies right out of college. It takes some work, but they can usually be straightened out.
I have read a few reports from management that were horrific. Those managers usually ended up in HQ.:eek:
